What schools have small classes with special education programs?

Hi I am a sophomore in high school and I am planning out what schools I would want to go to and I don't know which ones because I am in a special education program in high school and in small classes. I need a school with small classes and has a good special education program.

First off, it's great that you're starting to build your college list so early!

Here's a list of schools with great special education programs: https://www.greatvaluecolleges.net/top-colleges-for-disabled-students/

If you want to find out about average class size, all you have to do is google "[insert name of college] median class size" and you'll find the average size of their class. You can also google "[insert name of college] percentage of classes below 20 students" and you'll find that percentage. This number is a standard gauge used, though I don't know how small you need your class sizes to be.

If you find a school that you really like, you can contact their admissions department, whether by email or by phone, and ask any questions you might have, especially around specific accommodations and programs that they might be able to provide. While I would love to, I obviously can't list down all that information for every college with a special education program, so I felt like this was the best way to guide you on your own research path. If anyone else has any specific school suggestions, they can also leave it in this thread. I hope this was helpful, and good luck on your college search!
