|They have the money to keep the teacher-student ratio under 25:1. Ds' 3rd grade class last year was the biggest of the 3rd grades and he had 22.
-They have enough teachers to really do differentiated instruction. Ds (and now dd because she's starting there) will be grouped by achievement for reading and math. The teacher didn't have to worry about reaching the kids who were still really struggling to read and the kids who were reading at 5th and 6th grade levels. The struggling readers got a really small class (something like 6) and a reading specialist. The upper end readers were together and got challenged. The kids in the middle were met in the middle.
-There are enough different kids that the kids can find someone in their grade to socialize with.
-They've got a big library, and a big gym. They get music and art. They've got a full time counselor (many smaller schools get one half time or less).
