Actually I would say that is fine. You could probably fill your schools alittle more even.

You honestly to me are stocked. You can make each school 8 just because of their swimming locations. You have bottom (cories) middle (tetras and rasboros) and top gourami

They do have the same ammount of space but one is longer. The long is better because you have a bigger tank foot print for fish to swim. Fish dont normally swim up and down. They go side to side

If you watch the water params (or especially if you have live plants) then I would say 8 per school would work. All of those fish are small. You got room.
