Open Quote I have been so impressed by the genuine concern for the students as a whole and as individuals, as well as the breadth and depth of academic, athletic and arts opportunities offered. The special education staff is dedicated and skilled, and the school as a whole has integrated students with special needs almost seamlessly while addressing the individual's needs. We are very blessed to have our child enrolled at Ben Franklin! 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.
