Open Quote Westcliff is such a gem in this community. We have the most amazing and caring teachers, Principal and staff. This is a genuine group of families with wonderful children. Everyone sincerely cares about each other, the school, and the other families. Academically, we are second to none and my son is thriving. At the same time, I appreciate that Westcliff prioritizes health and well-being through adequate recess and physical activity breaks. 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.
