Public / Private Schools
Student–teacher ratio or student–faculty ratio is the number of students who attend a school or university divided by the number of teachers in the institution. For example, a student–teacher ratio of 10:1 indicates that there are 10 students for every one teacher.

Whenever there are more students in a grade than 40 per teacher, a teacher and classroom must be added. The effect on class size in smaller schools can be dramatic. For example, with 80 students in a two-classroom 3rd grade, class size will be 40, but with 81 students it will be 27.
A public and private school report covers a variety of school academics areas so parents can have a bigger idea of the student-to-teacher ratio, API scores, grade membership that might be helpful to new or current parents.
Class size is calculated by dividing the number of students enrolled by the number of classes. The student-teacher ratio is obtained by dividing the number of full-time equivalent pupils at a given level of education by the number of full-time equivalent teachers at that level and in similar types of institutions.
