Open Quote My daughter has attended since Kindergarten and now is in 4th grade. My son did the Pre-K progam as a Peer-Pal and is now in the SPLASH K class. The teachers are wonderful and truly care about each of their students. There are so many activities through the school for kids to further their interest in learning and enjoying the ARTS. The office staff is great about communicating and so friendly. I feel confident in the level of education my kids are receiving and being ready for the future and higher level learning.

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.
