Open Quote Our daughter was redistricted to Sun Valley this school year. Initially, we were reluctant as we were happy with the school she had been attending. Much to our surprise, the transition was not only smooth, it has been very positive. Our daughter is thriving both academically and socially. From administration to teachers, she has been welcomed. Her classes have been challenging and she has thrived. We could not be more thrilled. I encourage all prospective students / parents to talk with current students / parents. You will be astonished at the overwhelming sense of community and pride - which is just a bonus on top of the quality education in your child's future at Sun Valley. Welcome to Sun Valley Spartans!!

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.
