Open Quote An excellent education in a boutique environment! A top ranked PTO, amazing resources, exquisite teachers, and a supportive and generous community. Makefield Elementary School provides all of the "small town feel" of a private school with all of the "big school" resources and academics. A wonderful place for children to begin their education!

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.
