Small School

& Class Size

 ​​CTL is dedicated to maintaining a small school and small class sizes. Because of our small-school atmosphere, CTL faculty is better able to align the curriculum on a continuum through the grades. Furthermore, because of our small-class size, teachers are better able to differentiate for each student. In small schools children receive more individual attention and support, are more engaged in their studies, and are more likely to participate in extracurricular activities. Children are more than just a face in a crowd. The research base advocating small schools and small class sizes is compelling. In a review of hundred of studies, results have demonstrated significant benefits (Shah et al., 2009 p. 10; Hochschild & Scorvronick, 2003; Wesley et al., 2000).
