Advantages of private school

Some of the advantages of private school over public school is that private schools really pride themselves on keeping class size small, having a higher ratio of teachers to students, having aides in the classroom actually being fully credentialed teachers, having all kinds of resources that are now considered extra in public schools, such as art, music, physical education, library, even a school nurse. All of those things which might be considered extra in public school are taken for granted in private school. And that is some of what you are paying for in private school. When you look at what public schools get, which is in the neighborhood of $5,000 - $7,000 per student, and what private schools charge, which can be upwards of $15,000 per student, you can see that private schools can simply afford to do more than public schools can.
