Open Quote Best school good learning environment Close Quote

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Open Quote I have two children enrolled at PS IS 208 (kindergarten and second grade). I am thrilled with their teachers' innovative way of implementing common core while ensuring that the students are not missing out on needed concepts. The teachers are wonderful at communicating with parents and willing to help the students. I also feel that this is an extremely safe environment with security guards present and school implementing various drills to promote student safety. In addition, the PTA deligently works to raise funds for additional activities and the parent coordinator is actively involved in communicating with parents. 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.
