Open Quote Rama Road Elementary is an amazing little school. Despite its Title 1 status and high free & reduced lunch numbers, great strides are being made. The teachers are highly educated, experienced and enthusiastic. Rama has one of the best principals in the district. Many neighborhoods that opted out of Rama about a decade ago are coming back. The PTA is energized and gaining membership numbers exponentially. My children are thriving at Rama. We are so lucky to have such a great school right around the corner! 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.
