This database provides public school pupil-teacher ratios based on a count of full-time-equivalent teachers to total student enrollment. In some cases, schools may group students or teachers across several schools. Years reported reflect the second year of a traditional academic year, e.g., 2008 reflects the 2007-2008 academic year.
