Open Quote This is my daughters last year before moving on to Middle School next year. She loves her school and all the teachers and school staff are wonderful. I think its sad that they put so much weight on the test scores bring down ratings. Like myself as a IT professional, so many of us are just not good at taking tests. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
