Private school over Public school

By: Allison

When you were younger, you probably went to a public school your first couple years as a student. That was probably the choice your parents thought was right at the time. Not anymore though. The U.S. private school education system is much stronger than the U.S. public school system.

At private schools the classes tend to be much smaller. According to the National Center for Education Statistics study, private schools tend to be half as large as public schools. Many experts feel that children who attend smaller schools feel more welcomed and feel a sense of belonging. The National Association for Independent Schools say the teacher-student ratios in private schools tend to be more favorable. On average, private schools have a student-teacher ratio of 9:1 while public schools have a ratio of 17:1.

With that being said, the teachers in private schools aren't just your teachers. They're your coaches, friends, and you become close to them. In a public school they're only teachers. The public school coaches are usually student's parents or adults who are not involved with the school.

Not only is a private school student successful while they're in school, but when they graduate they are still just as successful as before. Most kids that attend private schools in middle/high school continue and don't drop out like public school students. Studies show that adults who attended private school are more likely to be engaged in civic activities than adults who attended a public school.
