5 Qualities Private Elementary Schools Should Exhibit

The popularity of private elementary schools has grown tremendously in recent years due to the benefits they offer. In fact, according to statista.com, approximately 2.63 million students were enrolled in private elementary schools in the U.S. in 2016. But not every private school, prep school summer camp, or kinder prep private school is the same. When choosing the best private elementary school for your child, look for the following five qualities it should exhibit.

Individualized Attention

In public schools, class sizes can have 30 to 40 students at a time, making it impossible for children to get individualized attention. Private schools have a much lower student-to-teacher ratio with as few as about 10 students in a class at a time. These smaller class sizes provide your child with the attention it needs to grow, as teachers can offer extra attention if your child is struggling with a subject.

Academic Focus

Private schools prepare students for college or their future careers, which is why academics are prioritized. Not only do private school teachers teach students the best ways to learn and absorb the material, but they also teach life skills to help students succeed beyond school.

Extracurricular Activities

The best private schools will offer extracurricular activities for students that provide student interaction and exceptional learning opportunities. At Riviera Schools, we offer music and voice lessons, engineering and robotics programs, arts and crafts, ballet, Zumba, chess, and more extracurricular activities for students. Prep school summer camp programs are also beneficial extracurricular activities.

Language Immersion

The best private preschools offer language immersion programs for students. Since the ability of children to learn and speak a second language is the greatest before the age of eight, choosing a private school with a language immersion program will give your child an advantage in life.

There is nothing more important than your child's education, so make sure the private school you choose exhibits all five of the qualities mentioned above. Riviera Schools offers an incredibly diverse range of academic and extracurricular programs for students as well as a language immersion program.
