Why do parents choose a private school? 39% cite “individualized attention”

Posted on

Individualized attention and academic success are inextricably entwined.  So, it’s not surprising that  “individualized attenton” was cited as one of the Top 5 Reasons Parents Choose a Private School, according to a recent study. In fact a whopping 39% said individualized attention was a deciding factor when selecting a school.

And, research bears out this validity of this choice. According to a recent study conducted by the Center for Public Education, “From this review of the research, we can scientifically document several important findings about reduced class size, which local school districts may find useful:

  • Smaller classes in the early grades (K-3) can boost student academic achievement;
  • Minority and low-income students show even greater gains when placed in small classes in the primary grades;
  • Supports, such as professional development for teachers and a rigorous curriculum, enhance the effect of reduced class size on academic achievement.
