Depends on what you want to do with it. There's everything from the free Neo-Office database module to Filemaker.

Thank you, I'm looking for a fairly simple database with names of teachers, language taught, school address, etc.
and the ability to address envelopes and mail letters to them. Maybe a total of 500 teachers.

Further Question does Apple itself have a database. They used to but I think they cut it out.

Apple did indeed have database software but no longer (ClarisWorks I think).
Looking here gives all sorts of options: Search for "database" : MacUpdate
Just find one that suits.

FileMaker offers WebDirect which means you can access your databases through any web browser and work on it and change your data. You can also access your databases from iPhone or iPad and it is rapid development. You can build dbs quickly in fact they have many pre-built databases you can just extend.

FileMaker is the apple of Apple's eye and very easy to learn but yet it can expand to support businesses and many businesses use it also. In reading up on it, they are top rated by PCMag and many other review-type magazines.
