Three Incredible Benefits of a Small Class Size

At Greenbrier Academy for Girls, a positive and supportive learning environment is an important piece of our premier program. And one of the best ways to ensure that your daughter is receiving the best possible education is by offering her individual attention in the classroom. Small class sizes allow for a more personalized learning experience, as well as an opportunity for students to do more hands-on learning.

Here are just a few of the reasons that small classroom sizes can aid your daughter’s education experience.


Tailored Program

Instead of constantly working to keep a large group of students on task, having a small class size allows teachers to tailor their program to the needs of each student. A tailored program can make learning much more fun, allowing for group activities, demonstrations and field trips while also providing more learning time.

Individualized Attention

Instead of sitting in the back of math class confused about algebra or equations, a small class size helps students get the individualized assistance they need for success. Homework and in-class assignments alike will allow the teacher to assess each student’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to create a lesson plan that further enhances learning.

Sense of Community

On top of ensuring that students have the attention they need for success, small classroom sizes also help to develop a sense of community among the students. Within this small group environment, each student will grow more comfortable speaking up to share their knowledge and opinions.

Connection is an important aspect of Greenbrier Academy for Girls, and the success our students experience in their small class sizes help them to realize how talented, capable and important they are.
