I'm going to cross post this on a few teacher boards so please forgive me if you've already read it. If you work or have worked in a small school do you like it? What are the advantages and disadvantages? I am a finalist for a position in a jr/sr high that has fewer than 500 students. Currently I'm the librarian in a huge school of 3000 kids in a 9-12 HS. I really dislike it, but I hope I wouldn't feel claustrophobic in such a small school.

Just my opinion, but I was in a school of 175 and it was great in a lot of ways. Everyone knew all of the kids. They got more attention and guidance and things could be more individualized. Also, the teachers
