Open Quote I would choose Charles Barrett ES over any private school in the area. The principal is amazing, the CETA program is very special and the teachers are so committed to the students and programs there. They have an awesome social worker (National Social Worker of the Year), and the positive attitude and methods regarding discipline make for a safe and friendly school, every day of the year. I feel so lucky! 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.
