Open Quote Don't let the test scores fool you -- this school has a lot to offer! Excellent teaching staff, a great curriculum (IB for the Primary Years) and engaged parents make this a wonderful learning community. It's also got a socio-demographic mix of kids, parents and staff that reflects the population of our city and our world.
School also offers Spanish as a world language -- most Mpls K-5 schools do not offer any world language. 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.
