Open Quote A small, wonderful school with a strong sense of community. My child loved attending school here & found the teaching staff very engaged with the students. Unfortunately we are no longer there due to moving out of state. We greatly miss this school! It is a "hidden gem" in my opinion. 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.
