Open Quote I adamantly dispise this school. They are political beyond reproach and the children suffer for it. They do what is best for the staff NOT the children and the principal is a do nothing figure head. Zoning regs tie parents' hands and the school is able to do whatever they please w/o consequence. I have seen numerous families MOVE to get their children OUT of Heckethorn elem. 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.
