Open Quote Great teachers and caring, nurturing office staff. Building is old, but that's typical for Providence. My son is thriving here. Only complaint is that there are no open houses or other school-wide events to involve parents and create a stronger community. 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.
