kindergarten through eighth grade i attended holy childhood school. it was a small private school right over by como park and the state fair grounds. the main difference between lincoln and holy childhood is the size and diversity. at holy childhood we had about 16 kids in our grade. there was only one class per grade. there was one year where there were only 2 kids in a grade. holy childhood had an estimated 150 kids in the whole school. while lincoln, on the other hand, has about 600 kids.
we had two black people in our class and one korean boy, the whites were the dominant race. it's almost the complete opposite at lincoln. only 2% of the children who attend lincoln are white, 71% are black.

My school was the same way. I went to a small private school with about the same number of kids, and in fact I think there was only one black girl in the school, so i get where you're coming from.

Good facts about your school. Its clear that its really small. How does size relate to students education do you think?

I'm with Adam on his question--what's significant about the size difference, do you think? How was your education different for being in such a small school? Beyond just the numbers difference, tell us what effect you think that difference might have on students?
