Open Quote I am a former student of A.Russell Knight, and now a parent of an ARK student. I am very pleased with ARK. I think most of the teachers are happy with their jobs and it is apparent. There are a couple who are less than good, and maybe shouldn't be teaching, but only a couple.. I think the principal, is doing a good job. The kids respect and like him. And. I feel he takes his job seriously, as he should. All of my concerns have been addressed in a fair and timely manner. ARK was such a great place to go to school, and I believe it still is. Times have changed, and kids are not always so nice to each other, but the community at ARK is great and we are glad to be a part of ARK. 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.
