Most durable teacher
La Maestra Chuca has been teaching in Caracas, Venezuela, for 81 years. In 1911, at the age of 12, she and her two sisters stared a school. Since marrying in 1942, she has run her own school from her home in Caracas.
Most schools attended
The greatest documented number of schools attended by a pupil is 265. The dubious honor goes to Wilma Williams (now Mrs. R.J. Horton) who, from 1933–43, toured the United States with her parents who were in show business.
World's largest school
In 1988/89, Rizal High School in Pasig, Manila, Philippines, had an enrolment of 16,458 regular students. Numbers have significantly declined since then.
Country with most schools
The country with the greatest number of primary schools is China with 938,394 in 1990.
Lowest teacher to pupil ratio
San Marino has the lowest pupil to teacher ratio—5.5 pupils per teacher.
Most graduates in a family
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Erickson of Naples, Florida, U.S., saw all 14 children—11 sons and 3 daughters—obtain university or college degrees between 1962 and 1978.
The title of the oldest existing school in Britain is contested. It is claimed that King's School in Canterbury, Kent, was a foundation of St. Augustine, some time between his arrival in Kent in AD 597 and his death c. 604.
