Class Sizes at Southern Wells

Education of every child is the most important part of what we do at Southern Wells Community Schools. We take that job seriously. You can rest assured each and every year, dedicated teachers and staff work with our students to ensure they received the BEST education possible at schools in the district.


Keeping class sizes low is critical for success of our students. Looking ahead to the 2017-18 school year, the district plan to keep class sizes low includes no more than 20 students in each class in grades K, 1, or 2. This plan
also includes no more than 25 in each class in grades 3-12**. The district is positioned to hire teachers as needed in order to maintain these class size targets: it’s just too important for learning and success of our students. Our community’s commitment made in May 2016 by approving the general fund referendum is honored through keeping all classes small in size.


For more information, please contact your child’s building Principal or contact Steve Darnell, Superintendent, directly at 765-728-5537 or 866-440-5537.

**Some elective classes (physical education, band, choir, etc.) may have more than 25 to ensure the integrity and operation of the program as a class.
