From a Teacher's Perspective: Public vs Private School

Mrs. Taggart is one of our incredible science teachers.  She has come to Sterling from a public school setting.  Here are her thoughts on how Sterling is different from public school.

"Sterling Classical School's small student-teacher ratio allows students to receive one-on-one help in math or science.  Large class sizes in public school did not allow me to check on each of my students every day; here I can speak with each student several times during and after class.  I can easily check for understanding and reteach as often as necessary so my students are successful.

One of my favorite aspects of teaching at Sterling is that hands-on, outdoor activities are encouraged. The science classes take the opportunity whenever possible to head outside to launch rockets, search for birds, and learn about God's fabulous creation. Challenging, engaging science labs are possible at Sterling because of the small student- teacher ratio and the classroom behavior expectations. 

At Sterling I am blessed to have the time to  create engaging lessons and teach the entire class period. In public school a lot of my time was spent in meetings about state testing and dealing with inappropriate classroom behaviors. My students are excited to learn and are eager to jump into challenging material at Sterling!"

2018 marks our 10-year anniversary!  We love our families and our students, and we're excited about all that God is doing here at Sterling!  We are celebrating by moving to a brand new, 14-acre campus for the 2018-2019 school year.

Are you wondering how we're different and what makes us special?  Read on...

Sterling Classical School incorporates a Christian, classical model that provides a unique approach to education by utilizing an advanced academic format.  We foster a love of learning through interactive classrooms and hands-on experiences.  And, we provide students with unparalleled college preparation.

Our class sizes are small fostering more individualized attention from our dedicated teachers.  We serve Pre K through 12th grade.  Our graduates can enter college with 34 hours of college credit if they choose to enroll in dual credit classes.  

Our teachers love their students and love teaching from a Biblical perspective.  They want the very best for each student in their classroom, and they lead with kindness and respect.  We are fortunate to have the caliber of teachers we have, and are thrilled that our students benefit from their talent and skill.

We partner with conscientious parents in the building of future generations, resulting in passionate seekers of wisdom and knowledge, through Christ, who desire to bring honor and glory to God.
