Private Middle Schools

St. Louis private grade school

Private schools have a mixed reputation in the U.S., as do public schools, but for the parents who can afford them, they are worth considering. While St. Louis private schools are more expensive, they charge more for a reason, which is why you should consider them. The following benefits of attending private school outline why these schools are often a better choice for elementary and high school students who would otherwise be stuck in the public system.

While many public schools limit the size of their classrooms, you can often see as many as 20-40 students per teacher in a single classroom, with only one or no assistants. This limits the amount of time that students get with the teacher. Private schools offer smaller classrooms, more assistants, and ensure that every student gets one-on-one time help and advice with their education.

Private School in St. Louis

Specific Tuition and Learning Material: Whether you’re looking for a St. Louis private school that educates according to your religious beliefs, that offer a specific type of learning such as Montessori, or that offers specialized help for children with ADD or another development disorder, private schools have all of the advantages. Most private schools have some specialization for different disorders, and you can usually easily find specific types of schools for your religion or beliefs. If any of these factors are important to you, then private school is a must, as you won’t usually find these things at public schools in St. Louis.

IEP: No matter what the age of your student, and IEP or Individualized Education Program is worth its weight in gold if you want your child to succeed. While some public schools work with creating individualized programs, private schools often automatically create individual programs to suit the learning needs of the student in question, allowing them to learn more easily, and at a pace that suits their learning behavior. Public schools are required by law to offer individualized programs when asked for, but with limited resources, they simply don’t compare to what is offered at a St. Louis public school.

Advanced Courses: Many elementary and high school level St. Louis private schools offer advanced placement and international programs that you wouldn’t be able to find at a STL public school. These programs are not free, but they do allow you to ensure that your child has access to opportunities for universities, future job and learning prospects, and the ability to see more of the world at a younger age.

Sports Programs Are Important to You: If your child is interested in sports and good at them then a private school may offer more opportunities for advancement into professional sports than public schools. Private schools in St. Louis usually have very strong athletic teams with quality coaches, and higher standards than those found in public schools, primarily because private schools have a higher budget for better coaches, and more teams that are more professional.
