The first benefit of private schools is the graduation rates. In California, the public high school graduation rate is 83%, whereas the private high school graduation rate is 99%. In addition, more students who attend private high school end up going to four-year universities than their counterparts in public schools.

Another benefit of private schools, whether it be private preschools, private elementary schools, or private middle schools, is smaller class sizes. Class sizes in most private schools are small, with about 12-15 students per classroom, meaning your child will get much more individualized attention and support than they would at a public school where class sizes are usually over 30 students per class.
