Open Quote I Love EAS. The kids are a joy to work with and the teachers are committed to excellent instruction and creating a child centered learning environment. I love how our schools is moving towards a 1 to 1 student computer ratio and that our school is getting our students ready for a future that could be very different from how things are today. I love EAS and wouldn't want to be anywhere else! 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.
