I don't see why that'd be the case; Prufrock clearly doesn't seem concerned with keeping siblings in the same class. The assignment of the orphans to their classes seemed a bit arbitrary, perhaps even sadistic-- after all, this is a school which puts babies to work making staples. Narratively speaking, I suppose having one Baudelaire and one Quagmire in each class is rather symmetrical(Handler seems to like this kind of symmetry between families and groups), and in some people's opinions, conducive to romance.

I don't think Nero was too concerned with placing people in their correct grades, seeing as how there really aren't any at Prufrock Prep. Mr. Remora tells simple short stories. That could be a kindergarten class or a high school senior class. The same applies to Mrs. Bass, who just makes her students measure objects.
Since Prufrock Prep is considered a VFD training school, it is likely that they are not set grade levels and just general classes for learning how to be volunteers.
