Benefits of Small Classes

Our classes have an impressively low student-teacher ratio, and thanks to these intimate class sizes, students enjoy greater participation, increased individual attention, and better communication with their teacher. Take a look at the benefits of a small classroom and how it enhances the learning experience.

One-on-One Time
Students in a small classroom get more individual attention and one-on-one time with the instructor. Because of this time, the instructor gets to know each student as an individual and understands his strengths and weaknesses. Teachers can customize instruction and guidance, and each child receives undivided attention.

Active Participation
When there are fewer students in the room, it’s harder to get away without participating or speaking up. This increases motivation to get involved. A smaller groups means fewer voices, meaning that students are able to apply their knowledge, share ideas, and join in class discussions.

More Feedback
Students benefit from a more thorough assessment of their work. Teachers have more time to devote to reviewing their students’ assignments and personalizing their feedback, which results in a more positive learning experience for the child.

The Community
Our classrooms operate like a family; we’re a community. When there are fewer students per class, it’s easier for them to connect and build long-lasting friendships. They learn how to respect and connect with peers who come from different cultures and countries, and they learn the value of listening to their peers’ knowledge and insight.

Hands-on Learning
Students in a small classroom encounter more opportunities for hands-on learning, meaning lessons are interactive and project-based. This drives authentic understanding and application of new material, and it allows students to engage in experiments, learn from their mistakes, and refine skills through repetition. Hands-on learning is key to helping students grow into well-rounded learners and leaders.
