Open Quote I am an alumni of Meridian and currently have a child enrolled there. As a parent, I feel its important to let my child handle what they can, but the teachers have been great with reaching out to me with any concerns. My daughter is happy, and that counts for a lot. 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.
