The Difference Between Private and Public Schools

Choosing where to send your children to school can be overwhelming – parents want the very best for their children’s education. Researching school options can help you make a decision on the best school for your child. Below are the key differences between private and public schools:


  • Different Admission Process


Private schools request an application process that all individuals interested must follow – it includes a tour, application, assessment and interview with the school’s team members. Oftentimes admission can be selective as schools want to keep a safe environment for all children and families.


  • Teacher Preparation


Private schools and private schools often have the same requirements when it comes to hiring teachers. The main difference here is that private schools often look for more specialized certificates and further education through advanced degrees.

The Ashwood Glen team carefully interviews and chooses the teachers that have the necessary qualifications in degrees and experience to provide excellent teaching to our students.We ensure our students are appropriately challenged, empowered and supported in their journey to reach their potential. 


  • Academics and Activities


With more resources, private schools are often able to offer an expanded list of programs and activities.
