Open Quote My daughter is receiving an excellent education at Parsley. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are well prepared and knowledgable, parents are involved, and there are plenty of opportunities for students to engage in extra curricular activities; They have an excellent educational enrichment program for gifted students as well.

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.
