Class Lists

Because careful consideration must be given to developing effective classrooms, much time and effort is used to prepare class lists. The process begins with teachers from both the past school year as well as teachers from the incoming grade level meeting and conferring on each individual child. A variety of factors are considered by the committee: individual needs, strengths, learning styles, interests and peer relationships. They then look at the class as a whole. It is important to have a balance of students in ability, leadership, size, and ratio of boys/girls.
