Class Size and Student Teacher Ratios
Class size and student-teacher ratios are very important when considering a school for your child. We encourage you to make this important comparison. At Grace Lutheran, we are able to provide students with the best possible classroom learning environment. Think about the learning that takes place when the teacher can work at length with each child in the classroom. It’s individualized, personalized and geared toward your child achieving maximum success in school, especially in Reading and Math. Every child has the teacher’s attention. Every child has the opportunity to participate in class. Every child learns differently. Wouldn’t it be great to know your child is receiving this type of nurturing every day? It’s something we are very proud to offer our students. We believe it’s part of the GLS difference.
