Open Quote Farnsworth Aerospace, both Upper and Lower campuses, is where my children go today. I am extreemly pleased with the level of education and curriculum offered. With the focus of aerospace tied into the arts it provides a well rounded and challenging environment for the students. The teachers and parents work together and the school leadership is top notch.

Open Quote I've attended Farnsworth for about 8 years in all including the amount of time after the expansion took place. I do admit that it is an exceptional example of a school. Though like everything else in life, Farnsworth does have its areas that need improvement. 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.
