Class size averages and configuration within provincial limits throughout School District 58.

A review conducted this fall shows the average class size in the district at 16.8 students.

While some classes, are pushing up against the provincial maximums, at the limit of 30 students, Superintendent Stephen McNiven believes students are in ideal situations.

"The class size maximums are reasonable and suitable. We certainly want to honour that and have to, and if you can have some smaller class size learning environments that's good for kids as well."

The average class size in School District 58 for Kindergarten is 18, grades one through three 20.1, four through seven 24.8 and at the high school level 16.8.
