Open Quote I am a past student who attended Zilker from k-6th as well as my sister, brother, mother, and uncles. Zilker is a wonderful school, has always had a friendly atmosphere and has an excellent learning system. Things that I learned back in 4th grade with my teacher Mr. Suhes has stuck with me until this 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.
