Open Quote This is our first year at Socrates Academy. We have a Kindergarten student and a fifth grade student. Although we had heard great things about the school's academic program before enrolling, we were amazed at how welcoming the teachers, administrators, parents and students were to both our children from day one. A new school can be an adjustment for a fifth grader and Kindergarten can prove to be a long day for little ones. But, the teachers, staff and volunteering parents work together to help make the environment as safe and supportive as possible. We would like to thank teachers, such as Mrs. Brooks who goes beyond her daily teaching role to come up with new ways to help her students without ceasing, Mrs. VanAlphen who greets every student and adult with an equally big smile and somehow makes science class the exciting adventure it should be, and Mrs. Howle who lovingly cares for each and every student equally. Unfortunately, the review would be too lengthy to list all the names of those deserving to be noted. So, we would like to give a massive thank you to All the teachers and staff! Volunteering parents are also on our list of reasons to attend this school. They have been a huge part in the success of the school, and they make new parents feel encouraged to participate as well. My advice to new parents is to jump into volunteering from the start, which is easy to do with so many class and general school opportunities. The more you do at the school, the more people you will meet and the more quickly you will feel that unique supportive family-like atmosphere this school can offer. 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.
