Student-teacher ratio
This number shows the number of students per teacher at this school. A low student-teacher ratio is not the same as a small class size. Some schools have teachers who teach specialized subjects with smaller classes. Other schools hire extra teachers to free up class preparation time for their core teaching staff. Both of these possibilities lower the overall student-teacher ratio but not the average class size.

Source: GreatSchools calculated this ratio by dividing the number of enrolled students by the number of teachers at the school. Student enrollment and teacher counts were provided by the California Department of Education and are from 2006-2007.
