Open Quote Amber is a great school! This is my son's 2nd year there. He is not one to open up with strangers and usually very introverted. However, his teachers from Kindergarten and 1st grade are wonderful with getting him to come out of his shell. Also the admin. staff is wonderful with making him feel welcome and engaged. He is a bright student that makes the honor roll every marking period. 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.
