First, private schools tend to hold higher academic standards than most public schools. Many students come through their private education much more prepared for college-level coursework and tend to thrive in a rigorous environment. Further, student-teacher ratios tend to be lower for private schools. At Landmark Christian School, we intentionally keep class sizes small so teachers can give each student the attention they need.
