Open Quote Hamilton... well.. in my opinion, the school is great. They have classes for extra smart kids (called Academically Independent Classes) and, therefore, their tests result are higher than other schools'.
They have a few students who did great job at Olympiads, for example one girl, who goes to class with my child (3rd grade Academically Independent), won the International Math Competition. A lot of children are foreigners (or born to foreign families) so they are fluent in different languages. 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.
