Open Quote My son attended Russell the 2012-2013 school year and he loves it. I am impressed with his kindergarten teacher, her style of teaching, the small size of the class, which always seems to have a helper, student teacher or assistant.

I thought he knew a lot before starting school from what I taught him at home and some things he learned in preschool, but this year at Russell he has learned things that I didn't even think would be taught until maybe 2nd grade. He has had a wonderful introduction to school and I am so happy. 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.
