Open Quote A great small school, with engaged parents, caring teachers and a very active PTA. Close Quote

Open Quote Great little school. I feel like my child is getting an excellent education there. Test scores are always high. It has a very active PTA and a lot of parent involvement. McLean has a lot of parents who are professionals and were high academic achievers themselves so school is a high priority for most parents here. The teachers my child has had have all been excellent and very dedicated. It seems like there's been a lot of teacher turnover in the last couple years, and some really amazing veteran teachers have left. There are usually 2 classes of each grade, but the school is small so they sometimes have to have split classes when there are not enough kids to fill two classes of a grade. That means they might have one class that is half 3rd graders and half 4th graders in the same classroom with one teacher covering both grades, along with one 3rd grade only class and one 4th grade only class. This works fine for some kids but is unsuitable for others, so there are some parents who do not like the split classes. 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.
