Many of us will say that we want our children to learn in small classes. But what really is that magic “small class size” number? In empirically written publications, researchers say that class sizes should be between 13-17 in the elementary years. Once students move into middle and high school, the class size number is no longer relevant. What matters most to these kids is relationships – ‘is the teacher investing time and interest in my learning’.
So walk into any class at Cornerstone Academy and you will see teachers engaged in students’ lives: teaching, modeling and igniting a love of learning.
