Open Quote This is a wonderful k-8 school in a vibrant neighborhood. Many great pieces are being added each year (i.e. choir, spanish language program for younger grades). A new playground will be built this summer. Class sizes are low in most grades. There is a terrific Home & School Association as well as a Friends of Adaire organization. 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.
