Open Quote Excellent learning environment that spills out into the hallways, with robotic cars, and into grounds, with flowerbeds designed by each grade level. We do not have a cafeteria to serve food, but we are the first school in Los Alamos to make getting a hot lunch program set up to feed our qualifying students a hot meal every school day. The students are the focus at Mountain. Happy students, make well adjusted learners. 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.
