A new private secondary school, Cyrus International School, Kuje, Abuja, says it will maintain low student-teacher ratio of between 15 and 25 students per teacher to increase students’ achievement.
The school’s Project Director, Osigbodi Francus Balogun, told Daily Trust that small class size enables better absorption and understanding of subjects and that the school, which is expected to start classes in September, will maintain low student-teacher ratio to enable individual attention by teachers.
He said, “There is a connection between smaller classes and higher student achievement and we shall ensure a class size of not more than 15-25 students per teacher to produce the greatest benefits.”
He said qualified teachers were required to ensure quality learning, adding that the school would allow teachers to take lessons within their areas of specialization.
He said effective discipline was important for maintaining a positive atmosphere in hostels and classrooms and supporting students’ learning, adding that teachers and school management must work with parents and teachers to develop a positive discipline plan.
