      Article Sources. Parochial schools have slightly larger class sizes typically in the 20 to 25 student range. What I hadn't appreciated was just how much the nursery was part of the school. There's often less bureaucracy.

Most private schools have websites with great photo galleries and video tours, with ample information available about their programs. Today education is a complex and compelling topic in our national dialogue. Submit all applications materials on time and pay attention to application deadlines. You simply cannot rely on the opinions of others or a website to tell what a school is really like.

Do the students behave as they change classes and walk through the campus? Public schools are obligated to evaluate for specific reasons.
