Open Quote All of the core elements of life were taught to me at De Zavala Elementary.

I learned how to draw there.
I learned how to read and write there.
I learned what I comprehend about arithmetic there.
The fondest memories I have of School were brought to life in this School.

I was a student a long,long time ago. I got to meet Clarice Tinsly While enrolled
there, She flew in on a White Bell Jet Ranger with royal and light blue stripes.She
landed on the playing field.I shook her hand. Thank you De Zavala Elementary The Best
School ever!!! 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.
