Open Quote Ad Prima is an excellent school. The teachers the best and my child is ahead of most kids her age. It's a tough school but worth it!! Close Quote

Open Quote This is an excellent school, which challenges the children in ways no other school here in Philadelphia does. Granted that the grading system is very very tough, but if I ever have to move my children to a school with a different grading system, they will become straight A students. Other than that the teachers and administrative staff are very helpful. Programs are offered, that if children struggle, can be used to bring them to where they need to be.

I love the school and so do my children. I have no intention to move my children anytime soon and can only recommend it. The Frankford Location of Ad-Prima now also has Bus Service for students, which makes the school easier to access. 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.
