Class Size & Enrollment Information

Why Smaller Class Sizes 

  • Students in small classes outperform students in larger classes by substantial margins on standardized tests*
  •  Students in small classes have higher performance than larger classes in all locations and at every grade level*
  •  There is solid experimental evidence of a “class size” effect, its longevity, its academic and non-academic benefits, and the continuing growth of students who start schooling in small classes (15 or 18:1) in K or grade one*
