Selecting a school for your child is an important decision, but doing your homework in advance can help you navigate through the process. Here are a few points to consider:
- What is the underlying philosophy of the school? What guides their programs and teaching approaches?
- What is the class size?
- What are the hours school is in session?
- What is this school’s approach to student discipline and safety?
- Is there clear evidence of solid academic progression from the school’s test scores?
- Does the school’s administration and staff/teachers seem engaged and passionate?
- What professional development activities do the teachers engage in?
- Where do students go after they graduate from 8th grade? Are there special classes or guidance offered to help students prepare for high school?
