Open Quote We have 2 children who attend Grey Cloud. We have nothing but great things to say about the school and the entire staff. Very impressed! Close Quote

Open Quote We recently relocated to the area and could not be more pleased with Grey Cloud. The Principal and teachers provide a welcoming atmosphere for all students and are great educators. The class sizes are a good size- nothing compared to the overcrowding at the last school- which was loud and out of control. The kids also have opportunities at Grey Cloud that they did not have at their last school (Spanish and Art for example).
Our experience at Grey Cloud so far has been great and we look forward to the years ahead. 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.
