Open Quote Teachers are extremely dedicated. This is a recognized title one school. No small effort was made to make that happen. Small classes and a wonderful learning atmosphere. I'm glad to live in this neighborhood and am proud to send my kids to Ridgetop. 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.
