Student-Teacher Ratio

The student-teacher ratio has been found to be one of the strongest indicators of student success and engagement. The ratio reflects the teacher's workload and how available they are to offer services and care to their students. Between 2018 and 2023, the student-teacher ratio had fluctuated in all school districts, ranging from 14-31 teachers to one student.
