Open Quote Teachers and principal here are generally well meaning but this program is basically the same curriculum as traditional elementary programs in the district but a year ahead with higher expectations and a few adjustments in terms of projects and assignments. There are programs in states on the east coast that use Renzulli or other bona fied hi-cap/gifted approaches, so it can be done. However, for whatever reasons, the Edmonds School District chooses not to put resources towards a true gifted program with authentic, systemitized gifted instruction. 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.
