Open Quote I am grateful and elated to be a part of the Kocurek elementary community. The teachers, staff, principal - all people I consider wonderful additions to my community and my children's lives. Families come together here at Kocurek and make the entire school year great. Plus, my kids are learning every single day academically, socially, and growing into fine young people. SO PROUD TO BE A KOCUREK FAMILY! Close Quote

Open Quote I recently visited this school during an observation and the staff there are some of THE rudest people I've had to deal with. I waited for about 5 minutes for one lady to acknowledge the question I was asking out loud. It was very irritating. Although, the're were a lot of great teachers who are genuinely concerned about the children's learning. Close Quote

Open Quote Some of the teachers are amazing. Although, office staff is some of the most rude people. I had a simple question, stood at the counter for a few minutes, while the clerk in front of me, sitting at her desk would not even acknowledge me. When I was finally helped, my question was treated as though it was a waste of her time to answer my question. The more help I needed, the more irritated the office clerk got. Not a place I would leave my child. Close Quote

Open Quote I recently visited this school to observe for a day, and I was very impressed by the hospitality of the faculty and staff, and the encouragement of the teachers within the school. The students have obviously been taught to be respectful of themselves, and others, and it was really an amazing and inspiring place to be. 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.
