Open Quote We are new to the Wilmington community and our daughter attends Alderman. It has been a fantastic experience so far! Class sizes are small (she has just 13 kids in her class), she gets a lot of personal attention, every teacher and staff member in the school greets her by name. School leadership works hard to build a culture of kindness and respect and makes sure every child is appropriately challenged and growing. We love our new neighborhood we're proud to say we love our neighborhood school, too. 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.
