A question is raised by a high school locating in the USA. And a Chinese student wants to answer the question in English.
The question is, what do you think this school attracts you most?
The answer:
Your school has lots of merits. First, student-teacher ratio is satisfying. Second, the recruitment of your school is open to international students.
I'm not satisfied with "satisfying". I want to express the number of students is small and that of teachers is big. Can you think of an proper adjective?

    You shouldn't be. You normally say something is "satisfying" if it leaves you with a sense of satiation, completion, or the fulfillment of your expectations. Here, it would be better to say something like, "The student-teacher ratio is excellent."
