Private Grade Schools Give an Early Start Towards Academic Success

A Head Start on Learning Skills and Study Habits


Private elementary schools provide children with a solid foundation to set them up for future academic success. These schools are renowned for their ability to offer students close attention through the advantage of smaller class sizes along with the instruction of highly qualified teachers. Private grade schools offer an early start to set the stage for future academic, career and personal success. Private schools also have several advantages over public schools including:


·       Various educational options and enriched academic opportunities, including international exchange programs and advanced placement (AP) programs

·       Excellent extracurricular activities or special programs – arts, sports,  and clubs

·       More freedom in curriculum design and general governance

·       Dedicated teachers, many with advanced degrees

·       Lower staff-to-student ratios allow for more effective observation and control of school grounds


Many private schools meet or exceed provincial education standards and students score higher on standardized tests. Private grade schools have incredible resources to support student learning in the classroom and outside of the classroom, providing students with the opportunity to fully explore their interests and talents that will carry them through the secondary level and beyond.


Well-Balanced Individuals


By offering a range of clubs and athletic programs, private schools give students the opportunity to develop essential social skills and leadership qualities that will benefit their character in the future. At these schools, a healthy and balanced lifestyle is encouraged, meaning that in addition to school work, it is important to find positive outlets for socializing and leisure.


Clubs and athletic teams help children determine where their natural talents and enjoyments lie and give them a positive focus outside of the classroom. By being involved in these programs, students establish strong peer relationships, while also enjoying the opportunity to work together as a team, boosting morale and school spirit.


Private schools help their students discover where their potential lies, not only in the academic realm, but also in the areas of art, culture, music and sports. These factors all contribute to healthy, happy and well-rounded individuals.


Smaller Class Sizes


One of the most beneficial factors of enrolling your children in a private elementary school is the smaller class sizes. A lower teacher-to-student ratio is fundamental in helping to determine the strengths and weaknesses of each child. As such, it is possible for parents and teachers to identify any learning obstacles early on and address them. The result is that no student is left behind and all are given the help, encouragement, and tools they need to reach their maximum potential.


Private elementary schools also believe that integrating technology into the learning process at an early age is important. With the crucial role that technology plays in today’s society, it is vital for students to attain an early grasp and understanding of its functions, paving the way for increased opportunities in post-secondary education and future careers.


By taking an early interest in your children’s education and enrolling them in a private elementary school, you can ensure they develop positive attitudes towards learning so they can go on to have fulfilling academic careers.
