Open Quote The elementary school teaching program is great. My kids now have two teachers to utilize as resources instead of just one. It is great to hear how my kids are doing and to have it verified by both teachers. Also the kids seem to be more engaged in classes this year than any other year. There are also programs available for those kids that want to participate. Examples would include, sports, band, and chess clubs to name a few. 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.
