The Small Schools Coalition

The Small Schools Coalition advances the interests of small schools throughout the world (ideally with around 230 students), the families they serve, and the teachers who thrive in this optimal educational environment. The SSC is a non-profit, no cost, voluntary membership association. Small schools are “more” in so many ways and the SSC helps get the word out, which is critical in an age that prioritizes bigness and institutionalization.
