Open Quote My son attended KG at South Ave. His teacher was fantastic...very devoted and caring. There were great art classes, a terrific Math Night where the kids did a lot of fun math activities. My son could already read an do simple math when he entered, so the teacher challenged him with centers designed to appeal to kids of various activity levels. My son was entertained and challenged. He loved learning and became a fan of non-fiction books. His teachers encouraged his interests and talents. The principle and staff handled all situations with a caring, developmental attitude, always encouraging children in a positive manor. My child's confidence and love of learning increased as a result of his experience at South Ave Elementary School. 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.
