Open Quote Up until last year I would have given Norman 1 star. However; since the introduction of our new principal, Floretta Andrews, the school has made a complete turn-around. I cannot tell you how happy I am to have my kids in a school run by her. She is there to hear the parents concerns 100% of the time- something I NEVER experienced prior to her coming. I am excited to see just how far our school will be able to go throught the coming years! 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.
