Open Quote Well I use to go to Alfred Lima elementary school 10 years ago ( from Kindergarten to 6th grade ) and this school taut me so much ! I was in the SSL program from Kindergarten to 4th grade an that taut me a lot about different cultures ( not just Hispanic and English ) but like African and Caribbean and a lot others . And I think without me being there , I wouldn't of learned as much as I did ; and now just seeing me graduate high school ( class of 2012 ) and I'm just so happy to have gone to the schools I went to and the teachers were just so supportive and helpful; it was like a family - like the teachers would make us learn and have so much fun at the same time and they'd actually have us sometimes feel and not want to go home ( it was that much fun ) . And it was just the best time of my schooling to have gone there. So parents just consider this school as a choice of schooling for your kids to go to . 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.
