It will very much depend on what the users are doing when they are connected. Here at the school district I work in we aim for 30 at a time and that seems to work very well. The other day during state testing we had 50+ connected on one AP with no issues during testing.
The biggest variable when determining WiFI need is what kind of bandwidth do you need to support for each device.
