The Advantages of Small Schools
There exists in the small school a sense of pride, and an attitude and sense of personal possession and involvement on the part of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community residents.
Teachers are more apt to know their students as individuals and to be familiar with the family backgrounds from which they come. This enables teachers to more knowledgeably make special provisions for individual needs and talents and to receive better cooperation from parents in resolving problems that may arise. Students in small schools also interact more frequently and informally with the teacher and with each other.
Multi-grade teaching is common practice in many small schools. Cross-age mixing of students allows younger students exposure to lessons and expectations of older students as well as opportunities to receive personalized tutoring from them.
Students are at the center of the school. Discipline is usually not a serious problem resulting in an increase in time spent learning. Low pupil/teacher ratios allow for more individualized instruction and more attention given to students. Relationships between students, teachers, administrators, and parents tend to be closer. Parental and community involvement tends to be stronger than in larger schools.
You will find all of these advantages at St. Joseph School.
