Open Quote My daughter is in kindergarten at Gooch. She is part of the new Two Way Dual Language Program, and really enjoys going to school there. We love living so close to the school and being able to walk her there every day. The school is a hidden gem of a place, with caring and friendly teachers, and a really nice atmosphere. Close Quote

Open Quote Not very safe !!! I walked the halls frequently and I would not be asked where I am going or what I am doing. School needs more supervision and security all kids & staff should require to wear a badge. Needs more security outside in the mornings on the main entrance. Some kids get drop off to school early in the morning and no one is out there to supervised. 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.
