We just moved, less than a month ago, and one of the big selling points for our house was the amazing school district it is in.
My child's elementary school has about 500 students. Most elementary schools in our city have about 1000 students. That is a difference of about 3 teachers per grade, vs. 6 teachers per grade! So glad we are not in a huge school where my child will be lost in the crowd for sure!
