Open Quote On this school evaluation site and others, I notice they list the student teacher ratio as 16-1 which sounds great, but I think is misleading. Schools may have additional credentialed teachers who do not have 'regular' classrooms but might do pull-out services of students w/special needs. When they are included in the mix, it makes it look like a lower ratio than in reality.

At Rooftop & perhaps other SFUSD schools, I believe K-3 has 22 students. There is talk by the district to raise this # to 25 students. 4-5th have about 32 students. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
