Open Quote Waubesa is an incredible school! The teachers, administrative staff, and the other students are all very caring and considerate,& want to get to know the parents and their child. The children's workload is just right, the teachers keep communication open and are available to the parents. The principal is caring and understanding of the regular day to day things that occur in the lives of the families that attend. The office secretary principals assistant (basically) is outstanding, & she really knows what goes on,& cares! Again this is one great 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.
