No matter which school your child attends, you will likely find there is a lack of personalized instruction. The reason for this is not a lack of interest from the administration and staff in the welfare of each student. Instead, it is due to the number of students each instructor has sitting in classes.
Even in the smallest classrooms, each teacher is given a minimum of a dozen students, while some have more than twice this amount. It can be very challenging for teachers to address the specific learning needs of each student when classrooms are so full. You can review the information below on some of Buffalo’s largest high schools to get a better understanding of class sizes in your area.
