This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Sid the Science Kid
Wild Mass Guessing for Sid The Science Kid.

Sid will grow up to be his world's Bill Nye the Science Guy.
Hey, why not?

Unbeknownst to Sid, his parents are obscenely rich.
  • Sid's parents don't let him know about their filthy rich status so that he'll have a relatively normal childhood. They even go so far as to pretend to have mundane jobs just so that Sid won't have a clue about their mind-bogglingly immense wealth.
    • However, they did splurge a bit on their house and yard, which seem really huge for a supposedly middle-class family.
  • Sid's parents fund Teacher Susie's school.
    • That explains how the school can survive financially with only four students.
    • It also explains why Sid always gets to choose the topic of the day; and it provides a reasonable explanation for why the other kids (who are presumably nowhere near as rich) are obligated to do a little song and dance when Sid arrives each morning.

They live in a post-apocalyptic world
Because they live on a house-lined street with no one else there. Maybe they were some doomsday cult who managed to save themselves, but it explains why only those families go to such a well-stocked school with only four kids - their parents are our reaping all the food and goods now sitting around. Every day the kids through the motions of regular life.

The kids are actually in a special ed class.
This could be an explanation on why there are only four students for besides the age they are at a special education class tends to have less students in it.
