Open Quote I'm a parent of a 10 & 11 yr. Old boys. My boys have been going to this school since kindergarten, now there in 5th. & 6th. Grade. I think this school is wonderful. The teachers are great and they really care for their students. This school is one of the best Elementary Schools in Pawtucket. 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.
