Open Quote Lurgio does an excellent job of encouraging the students to assume responsibility for their own education. My daughter is a gifted student and has the opportunity to take high school level foreign language (Mandarin) and math (Algebra/Geometry) classes for high school credit. She also participates in the extra-curricular Writer's Group that suits her ability and interest. Teachers are accessible and seem to truly care about the students. Sports programs are nuturing. Music offerings are substantial. The facility is new and inviting. Best decision we ever made was to build a home in Bedford 20 years ago! 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.
