Advantages of Private Schools 

There are a number of advantages to enrolling your child in a reputable private school.

Families choose a private education because of:

  • Smaller Class Sizes: learning groups and dynamics in private schools are smaller, which typically means your child would get more individualized attention (also a fundamental principle of Montessori education.)
  • More Flexible Curriculum: Private school teachers have more flexibility with the class curriculum, which means that private schools may introduce a variety of specialty programs and coursework not be available in a local public school. Private Schools students also tend to get higher scores on standardized tests.
  • Funding: Since private schools are independently funded, rather than publicly funded, parents have more say over what happens in the classrooms.
  • Option for Montessori Education: Montessori classrooms have been researched for centuries. Typically, Montessori schools cover an early education- when the child has a natural need for learning and exploring, offering a large opportunity for independent growth.
  • Option for Religion-Based Education: There are many private schools that are affiliated with a religion, and weave religion into their every-day curriculum. There is a wide range of private schools with a religious affiliation, and each of these schools may be more progressive, more traditional, or right in the middle.
  • Option for Single-Sex Education: You may also choose to send your child to an all-girls or all-boys school. Single-sex private schools offer an education free of the extra distraction that a mixed-gender classroom may cause. Additionally, in general, girls mature faster than boys, so an all-girls school may facilitate faster, stronger growth.
