Open Quote I have two children at PS 78 and we are really happy with the teachers and the wonderful school. Our kids had a choice to attend G&T programs. We chose not to leave and are very happy with how much our children are learning and so happy that we are a part of a community where PS78 plays such a big role. 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.
