Open Quote Absolutely the most organized and well managed school. Most teachers are very caring and go above and beyond what a typical public school teacher does. They call, email, text for the benefit of your child. They are very professional. Teachers at Denton have patience and are extremely calm. They are well versed and well prepared in their areas of expertise. I would say this school is a great middle ground between competition and a personal care. Excellent! I am a very tough person to please. I have fought for things in this school and each time they have given me what benefited my child at that time. I would be so bold to say this school is a level in class and professionalism that cannot be matched. 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.
