Open Quote We moved from Private School to the Magnet Program at Richardson. Best decision we ever made. Our eldest did fine at UA and is completing Law so no complaints but the next kid down got UT Austin for Architecture and Engineering (double Major). The school is flexible, rigorous and has a broad curriculum. We have two more in Richardson now. They are blossoming. 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.
