Public schools must follow state guidelines that set out specific standards and assessment procedures. Private schools can choose whatever curriculum and assessment model they wish.

Many states fund small class sized to keep them in grades k-3. The class sizes tend to increase when the grade level increases. Many private schools try to provide low student to teacher ratios but they sometimes have class sizes larger than ones in public schools.

When it comes to standardized testing, private school students score higher than those who go to public school. "In a 2006 study by the National Center of Education Statistics (NCES), which took account students' backgrounds, told a different story" (GreatSchools Staff) When it came to reading and math scores, students fourth and eighth grade enrolled in public school scored almost as well as or better than those in private schools. "A Harvard University study challenged the results. Researchers found that private schools came out ahead in 11 to 12 comparisons of students." (GreatSchools Staff). Both private and public schools can offer remarkable academics to enrich the knowledge of their students.
