Our Class Sizes
The average class size at SPPCS is 13 students in Kindergarten through fourth grade. Our average class size in fifth through eighth grades is 14 students.
Studies have proven over and over again that smaller class sizes lead to better academic performances. By keeping our class sizes small, our teachers can provide individual attention to our students. Differentiated instruction and cooperative learning takes place on a daily basis – teaching styles that are much more difficult to implement when the class sizes are larger.
From grade to grade, students’ needs are considered when making class lists, deciding academic requirements, and placement. No one gets lost in the shuffle at SPPCS.
“It is so hard to share just one thing that is so awesome about SPPCS. I would have to say second only to the great education would be the peace of mind I feel knowing that my girls have so many people watching out for them. Whether it is faculty, staff or other parents there are so many caring people watching out for the best interest of the children and keeping them safe. Even non-school activities out in our local community SPPCS parents watch out for SPPCS children. This peace of mind is wonderful and I am very grateful for this.” The Lehmann Family
