Q. Why attend an independent private school?
A. The reasons cited over and over again by the 400,000 families who send their children to independent private schools include individual attention, small classes, teacher excellence, and high academic standards. But the main motive for families looking into independent private schools can be summarized in one word: Quality. They want, quite simply, the best for their sons and daughters.
