Private School vs Public School


The debate goes on.  Which one gives your child an advantage?  Which one is right for your child?

Private Education

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 5 million or roughly 10 percent of the students in the United States attend private schools while nearly 50 million attend public elementary and secondary schools.  There are definitely benefits and drawbacks to both.

Here are some of the advantage of a private school education:

  • • Higher standards
  • • A more flexible curriculum
  • • Smaller class sizes
  • • Better prepared to combat bullying with anti-bullying campaigns
  • • More accepting of students from minority groups
  • • Produce higher standardized test scores.

We believe that Brookridge Day School offers the clear advantage in early development and education.
