Hi jaedesmommy06,

Student-teacher ratios are set by the state and individual school districts. With the economy where it has been the last few years, there has most definitely been an increase in that number. Where the ratio used to be 20:1 and classes would have as few as 17 or 18 kids, now the ratio in my daughter's district is 24:1 in lower grades and much higher in upper grades.

I'm not sure what you refer to as small or medium class size, but most of the public schools in a give state will have very similar ratios. Private schools can offer better ratios but even private schools can have high ratios.

To start your search, you can start here: http://www.greatschools.org/find-schools/ After you type in your zip code or area, you will be able to narrow down your search by reading the parent reviews, comparing test scores, and looking at the ratios.

Good luck!
