Question and Answers for AP Advanced Placement


Public vs Private: Why choose a private school over a very good public school? What are the benefits?

Choosing a school, whether public or private, 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


  • 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.
