Open Quote Saratoga ES is a fantastic school! The teachers and the administration truly care about the kids! it's in a great neighborhood and not on a BIG, dangerous street. The school and community defines the true definition of the "great American melting pot". Diversity is it's middle name! We have established very close ties to the other families of the community. it truly is a community experience living in Saratoga and sending our children to Saratoga ES. I lived in Centreville for years but the decision to move to the Springfield/Saratoga area was the best decision ever. we have developed close bonds with other families through the school, scouts, swim team and sports. it is the American dream!

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.
