Open Quote The teachers at East Elementary have a large heart for students in need. Many students that attend this school live below the poverty level. They face issues related to this that mean school is a daily struggle. Many students also face the struggle of learning a new langage while learning academic content. They are then forced to test in a new language. (Academic language takes 5-9 years to acquire, but the students must take the EOGs after 1-3.) The teachers at East teach not only academics, but also self care, language, emotional, and psychological skills. Do not judge this school by the level of poverty or test scores. 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.
