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

"A-" Elementary school: 1 to18 or 1 to 20. Middle school: 1 to 20. But this is not counting teaching assistants, ESL specialists, literary specialists, etc, who are usually present during the class. - Jan 4, 2016
A: There are at least two teachers in every classroom. As the school is growing, if a class size reaches 20, then another teacher is added until the class is formally split in two. Currently my 5-year old is in a class of 13 with a lead teacher, assistant teacher, and student teacher. My 2nd and 4th graders are in classes of about 22, each with a lead teacher and two assistant teachers. My second grader's class will split next month. So essentially there is a teacher to student ration of about 1:8 or 1:7, not including the specialist teachers. - Mar 4, 2014
B. There seems to be a 1:17-20 teacher student ratio. The grades do have teacher assistants that help with multiple classes. - Aug 6, 2013
