I have 140 students in 7 classes (Middle School).
One class is non art (15) students so I have 6 art
classes with an average of 20.8 students. We don't
have any size limits. After 24 years in the school
I have just learned to work it out with the principle,
counselors, etc. This year the Band teacher has a
period off each day to schedule all students. That's
the major reason I'm in such good shape.
