Private VS. Public School : What Really Is the Difference?

Enrolling your child in school can be a daunting task. After all, you are your child's first teacher, and you want to ensure they're receiving the best education possible.

First and foremost, you will need to decide between public and private schools. Here is a quick breakdown between private schools and their public counterparts to take into consideration.

Class size

One of the biggest differences between public and private schools is the class size offered. Public schools generally have a class size of around 25-30 students, while a typical private school averages about 15 to 16 students. This smaller class size will allow your child to have more of a one on one relationship with their teacher, and fewer distractions in the classroom.

More variety

Generally, there are more electives offered at private schools than public, which introduce your child to different subjects that wouldn't be offered at their public schools. These elective options are available at a young age too, so enrolling your child in a private elementary school can pique their interest from day one in anything from foreign languages to technology and sciences.

More selective

There are only 33,619 private schools in the United States. While this number may seem large, it only equates to 5.4 million PK through 12 students nationwide. From private elementary schools to private middle schools, going through a selection process will hold your children to higher educational standards and surround them with peers at their educational level. This also means these students will be highly motivated, which is a great trait to establish early.

Different kinds of teachers

While public school teachers have to be certified by the state, things are a little different for private school teachers. They don't necessarily have to be certified by the state, but are typically experts in their field and hold at least a masters or PhD. Private school teachers are hired generally on a renewable contract, where public school teachers can be granted tenure even if the quality of their education is poor.

Private schools can offer your child a fantastic education, with a high quality of learning. If you are interested in learning more, please contact our professionals at Conchita Espinosa Academy today.
