As a parent, the biggest and most nerve wrecking decision that you can ever take is of choosing the right school for your child. The future of your child, in the truest sense, depends on the school that you enroll them into.
In this article, we will be looking into the practical steps of choosing the right school for your child, to make the complex process a lot manageable.
Here are the steps that you should take before enrolling your child in a school that you heard positive reviews of from a friend or neighbor.
Don’t go by the name
The first and prime most step of choosing the right school for your child is not to go by the name of the school. Just because a school is famous or in news, it doesn’t mean that the education will also be at par. So first thing first, don’t decide on the basis of popularity.
Look at the School Curriculum
Take a lot at the curriculum that the school follows. If you are in a transferable job, opt for CBSE or ICSE instead of State Boards of IGCSE. Although, you should note that ICSE is considered more difficult than CBSE, so make sure that you don’t switch from CBSE to ICSE or vice versa, half way in.
Talk to the Parents
Make a visit to theschool when the classes end and parents come to pick their children and talk to the parents. Get their review in terms of teaching, the environment, money the school charge in name of extracurricular activities, etc.
Once you are through with these steps, you would have with you a list of schools that are good to go for the next and final round of screening – Meeting the principal.
Now that you have 5 to 6 names ready with you, the next and last step is to officially visit the school property. This is where you look at the infrastructure, talk to the teachers and learn their teaching methods. Also, while you are in school, look at how students interact with each other – the language they use etc. after all, you wouldn’t want your child to pick colourful words from school and use them at home.
The location of the school is an important factor to consider. You should look for a school that is close to your home or workplace, as it will make it easier for you to drop off and pick up your child. You should also consider the safety of the area where the school is located, as well as the availability of transportation.
The infrastructure of the school is another important factor to consider. You should look for a school that has modern facilities and equipment, such as science labs, computer labs, and libraries. You should also consider the size of the classrooms, playgrounds, and other facilities.
The faculty of the school is another important factor to consider. You should look for a school that has experienced and qualified teachers who can provide your child with a good education. You should also consider the student-teacher ratio, as this can have an impact on the quality of education your child receives.
Extracurricular activities are an important part of a child’s education. You should look for a school that offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, such as sports, music, drama, and dance. These activities can help your child develop important life skills and interests.
Finally, you should consider the fees of the school. You should look for a school that offers a good education at a reasonable price. You should also consider whether the school offers any scholarships or financial aid.
