Open Quote I was in Menlo Park Elementary school from kindergarten to fifth grade. I had lots of fun there, and made a whole bunch of good friends. Everyone there was either extremely smart or just above average. I had great experiences,teachers,and fun in this school. I was actually bored at home and wanted to go to school because it was so exciting to spend time with my close friends. I will never forget this awesome school that I was in. 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.
