    I'm jealous, we don't have a real maximum, just a 'recommendation'. I have 27 in grade 1 this year.

    My smallest class has 20. My largest class has 27. I have six groups of students per day. This year we have a smaller group, so class sizes are smaller than usual.

    Believe it or not, that's a hard question.

    I have 141 sophomoresevery day. I picked up a daily frosh Algebra class in November, that's 35 more.

    Then I have 3 SAT prep classes I see one period a week. Each has about 35 kids in it.

    And when I picked up the Algebra class, I dropped 2 more SAT prep classes.

    My homeroom has 38, and there are 36 kids in the study hall I have 5 days out of every 6.

    Confused yet??

    15 fifth graders. It will never happen again. Total fluke, and they let it stand.

    However, they are a handful anyway. One had a court date for an out-pf-school illegal activity yesterday. After all his previous court dates, he's come to school in the afternoon. This time he didn't, and he didn't show up today. I wonder if he is at the youth jail. Principal is calling about it in the morning. Terrific.

    Another came to school a month ago with marijuana ashes mixed in with cigarette tobacco. He was showing it around. Wonderful.

    Another brought his brother's cell phone to school to show his friends on the bus. The brother's girlfriend had "sexted" pictures of herself to the brother. Lovely.

    Another is bi-polar. But he really is doing fine. The medicine wears off during PE at the end of the day, so the ride home on the bus is dicey, but I don't have to deal with that. Sweet.

    One psycho mom. One "don't mess with me" girl.

    But the rest of the class is really fine. It sure is easy to deal with the kids who need extra attention when you only have 15.


    Next year, I will have 30. Quite a jump.

    My largest class is 29 for sixth grade math, my smallest class is 10 (but it's a remediation course).

    It'll probably be closer to 32 next year.

    I've got 19 first graders. 21 is the most I've ever had in 8 years. 20 is always our average but we've been told to expect bigger classes next year. I was thinking around 25, but now I think it may only be 22ish. How in the world do you guys do such large classes with these little ones. I just don't see how I could provide what they need with that many!

    The state allows 32, I think. It keeps changing. We have 4 classes, too. I started the year with 27 but I'm at 29 now. It looks like we'll all start with 28 or 29 next year...with 5 classes. I don't know what we'll do if we have another influx of students. My room barely holds 29, I don't think I can shove 32 in there.

    My largest class has 36 students (Gr. 12 French Immersion), and my smallest class is Gr. 10 Phys Ed which has 20 girls. I teach high school, so my numbers tend to be fairly high...
