Question and Answers

How much will my kids benefit from attending private school versus the public Catholic school systems at the elementary age? Is it worth paying for the private school system?

Expert Answer

Choosing a school, whether public, private, Catholic or Independent should be based on your child's and family's needs. Also, if your child has specific abilities or interests you would like to encourage, such as creativity or athletics, then you will want to choose the school that offers your child the most. Here is a comparison of private schools vs public schools.

Top Benefits of Private School.

  • lower class sizes
  • enhanced creative and athletic programs
  • before- and after-school programs
  • additional academic help if your child needs it
  • individualized attention

  • Also, some private schools offer academically the International Baccalaureate programme, Advanced Placement courses, Round Square and Duke of Edinburgh. Additionally, alternative schools offer different methods of teaching. If, after reviewing all that the public and private schools offer, the very good public school seems to suit your child’s needs and your objectives the best, then that would be the school to choose.
