Open Quote I've had the pleasure of interacting with some of the most caring, effective teachers I've ever met. They are excellent educators and always put the students first. Everyone is starting to settle into the new administration, although its a big change. We love Polo Ridge! 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.
