Kingston - School Report Question and Answers

What is the approximate teacher-to-student ratio in the grades that your child attended?

For kindergarten, there are 14 students and two teachers. - Mar 2017

Each class has about 26 students with 1-2 helper teachers. The ratio is about one to eight. - Jun 2016

C. My child's kindergarten class at one point in the school year rose over 20 students with only a principal teacher and a teacher assistant. I know that is a normal teacher to student ratio for a public school in the States, but one of the reasons we picked AISK was because of the small class size, so we were disappointed. I also was disappointed by the actual size of the classroom which was far too small for that many students. The school, after multiple parent complaints, did add another part-time teacher assistant, but it was very late in the school year. I think that the school's concern for their budget and profits outweighed their concern for the students. - May 2016
