    Just like it says-I'm curious how many students you have total. I'm at a very small school. Last year I taught six classes for a total of 70 students. My class sizes ranged from 3-25 students.

    I normally have about 175 students divided into 5 classes.

    I have had as many as 230 students divided into 5 classes. Those years were challenging.

    Not high school, but while teaching departmentalized 5th grade (science and social studies), I had around 80.

    Next year, teaching 6th grade math and social studies, I will have 60-70. I will be teaching all the 6th grade kids in my school district- it is small.

    last year: 6 classes and 130 students.

    Just saw my tentative rosters today. 5 classes and 94 students!
    I have a duty period near the end of the day. Not sure what it entails - but I KNOW it's not cafeteria duty.

    Last year around 150 students in 5 classes. This year I think it's more in the 165 range. The upcoming 8th grade class is extra large. Class sizes should go down again the following year.

    Lowest I ever had was 90 for four core classes. Highest was 117. This year I have five core classes and there are supposed to be about 102 students.

    Yowsa! With so many students per class how do you manage labs? Seems like a huge safety issue.

    Last year I had about 150 (students come and go in a school like mine). Next year has a huge number of upcoming freshmen compared to years past, to the point they've added an extra year-long team of teachers. I'll probably have about 140 or so.

    6 classes/ 210 students

    It ebbs and flows constantly, but right around 35 per class.
