Open Quote All 3 of my children attended Riverbend HAS for all 4 years. The each received an excellent education. Most of their teachers were very good @ keeping communication open & worked with my children and myself to reach their individual goals. The environment always clean. I felt my children were safe with a low crime rate. Overall, I was very happy with the 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.
