Open Quote Great school. STEM focus is wonderful. My son went there for K and first grade. We miss this school and wonderful teachers and staff. They made learning fun and set the stage for a great school experience. Our current school is very acedemically sound, but lacks the fun of learning that weatherstone incorporated. 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.
