Open Quote I have never been to Windy Gap Elementary or met any of the Administrators or teachers who occupy the building but I do know my Grandson who recently transferred from an outstanding school in Sumter South Carolina to Windy Gap. As a school administrator myself who has been teaching for more than 19 years I know that a child's first few days in a school make all the difference in their educational experience. Before my grandson even enrolled I visited the school website and checked out the test scores and school rankings. The website was a great view into the school and the many activities that students have access. I also looked at the school's test scores which were good but not stellar, however as an educator I know most of those scores are an aggregate of both struggling students as well as the brightest students. What convinced me that this was a definite "5" was how my grandson was received, not as an additional student to be served but as an important part of this school. His teacher Ms. Angel greeted him warmly and made his transition from one school to another, a traumatic event in the life of a 9 year old, a happy and positive experience. I have since received many phone calls about good grades, and a wonderful teacher. While my experience in this school is limited my grandson is happy and thriving... and that is good enough for a loving grandfather. 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.
