Personal Development

 

When looking for the best private schools, parents have many different academic institutions available to satisfy the high expectations they have for their children’s education. A private education scores top grades when stacked against public education. The best private schools offer more than just high-level curriculum – they offer an opportunity for students to develop a sense of community and self-worth that is unparalleled.

 

Private schools that value both the educational and personal development of their students are the ones which consistently send well-rounded and prepared graduates off to post-secondary institutions. Students who will continue to apply their above-average skills to achieve ultimate success.

 

Private schools have the tools and the capacity to effectively help each student reach their true potential. By integrating the latest educational technology trends, students can become fully engaged; not only in the curriculum at hand but also in the new methods of technology that enhance the learning process.

 

A Tech Savvy Classroom

 

As a result of this technological integration, students in private schools are achieving high rates of literacy and numeracy at an increased speed. Parents watch as their children learn the basics of the classroom, all the while attaining an above-average understanding of the subjects which will set them up for success in both post-secondary education as well as  in real life applications.

 

In addition to the benefits of educational technology, students also have the chance to participate in high level athletic programs, clubs and organizations. This gives students tremendous opportunity to further develop their own personal skills. Teaching sportsmanship in competition, while developing the social  skills that come with being a part of any group, team or club will prepare them for high-level positions in the workforce. The advantages of participating in extra-curricular activities are numerous. Students develop relationship and leadership skills while expanding upon their interests and enjoying the company and encouragement of their peers.

 

Smaller Class Sizes

 

The best private schools offer smaller class sizes giving each pupil the opportunity to develop a voice and personality within the classroom. True relationships are fostered between teachers and students, creating trust and respect on both sides. With large classroom sizes that the public-school system is plagued with, it is often difficult to develop the real connections that lead to better grades and a better understanding of the topics. With a smaller group, students naturally feel more inclined to get involved in class discussions and to ask questions. Teachers get to know their students better and can effectively address the strengthsand weaknesses of each individual, allowing for better communication with parents in regards to where improvements can be made.

 

Smaller class sizes help students feel more confident and involved in the learning process. They offer an environment where learning is encouraged through active participation, as opposed to brisk note taking and simply listening to lectures. Students truly feel as though their voices are heard, questions are answered and they have a true partnership with their teacher.
