Student / Teacher Ratios
Our average teacher student ratio for grades 6-12 is 1 to 50. Details by grade level bands are as follows:
K-3: Not applicable.
4-8: 1 to 50 (grades 6-8 only – grades 4-5 are not applicable)
9-12: 1 to 50
Full time teachers have a total load of 200 – 225 students and part time teachers 50 – 100 depending on whether they are half or quarter time. Because greenways offers a unique program where certified teachers provide guided and supervised online instruction at all times, each teacher has no more than one subject area of expertise. For example, a half time Mathematics teacher may teach two sections, Algebra and Geometry, with no more than 100 students combined. These ratios hold true for grades 6-12 in both core and elective courses which includes grade level bands 6-8 and 9-12. Since Greenways offers a 6-12curriculum , the grade level bands of K-3 are not applicable and 4-8 are partially applicable.
