Why Small Class Size Is Important

Individualized Attention
Academic Achievement
Positive Impact on Students and Teachers

Studies have demonstrated that students who are assigned to smaller classes in grades K-3rd do better in every way that can be measured: they score higher on tests, receive better grades, and exhibit improved attendance. A recent Department of Education evaluation revealed that students who were in smaller classes in Kindergarten had higher earnings in adulthood, as well as a greater likelihood of attending college and having a 410K retirement plan. In fact, according to this study, the only two “observable” classroom factors that led to better outcomes were being placed in a small class and having an experienced teacher.


Westminster classes are small, ranging from 15–18 students.
