At Infinity Arts Center, all of our classes have an impressively low student-teacher ratio. Small class sizes ensure that students receive a quality arts education through hands-on learning.
When you or your child sign up for one of our classes, camps, workshops or after-school programs, you can be sure to get the one-on-one nurturing small class sizes provide. Read on to learn about eight benefits of low student-teacher ratios.
- Working One-on-One
Students and teachers at IAC have plenty of opportunities to work together one-on-one, allowing the opportunity to tailor instruction toward the student’s needs.
- Participation Opportunities
Small groups mean having to compete less for participation opportunities. Students can have their voices heard and apply what they are learning to class discussions.
- All Students are Noticed
In large classes, students can hide and get left behind. But, fewer students means that each one gets the attention he or she deserves.
- Ability to Focus on Learning
In classrooms with fewer students, teachers can spend more time teaching the material and less time regaining the attention of students who might be easily distracted. They can also cater to different learning styles among students.
- More Efficient Learning
Students learn more in small classes, and they also learn faster. This means the class will progress through material more quickly, and students will have the opportunity to learn even more per class.
- More Feedback
In classes with smaller student-to-teacher ratios, teachers have time to customize their feedback to students. With individualized feedback, students get the help they need to reach their potential.
- Ideas are Expressed
In small classes, students have more time to share ideas and perspectives. They can explore their opinions and gain the confidence to express those opinions openly.
- Classrooms are Communities
With fewer students per class, students support each other and can connect more personally with classmates, which can lead to lasting friendships. Join the IAC community by enrolling in one of our summer camps or fall classes!
