Open Quote We have been very happy with the office staff and teachers at Sanford. They helped us transition into the school in the middle of the year. The principle (Lieberman) knows all the kids by name; they all respond very well to him in the halls. He has their respect. He keeps a very encouraging and positive attitude. The teachers we have in first and second grade are great teachers, obviously enjoy what they are doing and really investing into our kids. Our kids are excited about school every day; they love the music and arts and PE class as well. We are all sad to be moving away from this school. 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.
