Small Class Sizes Equate To Big Student Successes

Bigger is not always better when it comes to class sizes, especially for younger students. Several studies have shown that reducing classroom size improves student achievement, better preparing young adults for the future. Fusion Academy uses an innovative approach so their students receive individualized attention in a one-to-one classroom setting.

There are many benefits to teaching fewer students in a classroom. One of the biggest is that teachers have an opportunity to engage directly with their students and use instructional approaches that best meet the specific needs of each child. Students also actively engage more in daily classroom activities when there are fewer distractions present at school. With fewer distractions, kids have a chance to learn more than they would in a larger setting and teachers have the chance to cover a wider variety of course materials.

Researchers generally agree that lower class sizes, at least in the earliest grades, are linked to positive educational benefits such as better test scores, fewer dropouts and higher graduation rates. While the cost of hiring more teachers to meet the appropriate ratio of students to teachers would increase, the curriculum would greatly benefit.

The traditional classroom setting is rapidly changing throughout the country as more schools opt for a more intimate school experience. Fusion Academy provides a customized curriculum for each student’s unique strengths and learning style, and would be a great fit for any student seeking individualized attention.
