Open Quote This is our second year at Matunuck Elementary and I have nothing but positive things to say. The teachers are amazing and you can see that they really care about the children. My daughter was new to the school last year an was struggling with reading. The teachers picked up on it immediately and got her the extra help she needed with the reading specialist. She was reading on grade level within 3 months. It has the small town feel of a private school where everyone knows each other. The principal and the administration are very receptive and always make themselves available to the parents. They offer phys ed, art and music and the after school programs are reasonably priced and are a good variety of activities.
Would love to see a foreign language offered as part of the regular school curriculum but I am sure that school budget may not allow for this.
The PTA does great activities for the children and families. Would love to see the school go back to being up to fifth grade!

Overall a wonderful school with great people. I feel very happy leaving my children there every day. 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.
