Open Quote Dennis has been wonderful for my son! He has struggled to keep up with the other students. His teacher has never given up on him. She continues to try to help him catch up. Dennis has wonderful teachers! Dennis does lots of fun activities throughout the school year. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate. I highly recommend James L. Dennis! 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.
