Open Quote My son loves Capitol Hill Elementary! There is great balance of typical reading, writing, math, along with art, active times, and extracurricular options. In addition, the teachers are very qualified and compassionate, always available to talk. I feel great about our choice to send him to Capitol Hill. 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.
