5 things you should consider while choosing a school

by Akash Sharma Akash Sharma

Everyone wishes for the best possible education for their child. An average child spends about 6-8 hours in school. It is said to be their second home. Schools play a very important role in shaping your child.

However, you cannot choose a random school. With global conditions constantly changing, you need a school that can prepare your child for a dynamic future. There are a lot of pre-schools, primary schools, and high schools emerging around us. But it is important to do research and look for certain factors that can help you pick a school that is most suitable for your child.

Here are some things you should consider:

Extra-Curricular Activities

In today’s highly competitive world, extra-curricular activities are indispensable. They can provide all the necessary exposure your child needs to have a confident outlook. It can also develop their physical and cognitive skills, while also developing their personality.

Schools provide a wide range of activities these days, such as yoga, swimming, cooking, music, dance, martial arts, etc., to name a few. You can choose according to your child’s interests.

Teaching And Learning Styles

The way a teacher teaches can affect the child’s learning a great deal. There are mainly two types of learning styles that are found to be most effective:

       Inquiry-based learning– Students are encouraged to ask questions and find or create solutions.

       Cooperative-based learning– By promoting experimental and peer-to-peer interactive projects, students can help each other learn.

 Student-Teacher Ratio

Smaller class sizes are generally more effective because each student can get more individual attention. This means that the teachers can tailor their teaching methods according to the needs of each student, and more resources can be allocated for weaker students. The students can also participate more freely in class discussions, ask doubts and express their opinions.

Facilities

If you look at all the top schools in Delhi, or even the country for that matter, you notice one common thing. They have good facilities. Schools like The Shri Ram School offer all the facilities you’ll need for your child to have the best possible education. Some of the facilities that need to be on your checklist are:

       Computer labs

       Music and dance rooms

       Auditoriums

       Sports facilities

       Infirmaries

       Libraries

Safety

The safety of your child should never be compromised. It is advisable to ask questions about how the school deals with bullying, if they have an emergency plan, if there has been any previous crime in the school, and if yes, what the school has done to deal with it. 

Hopefully, this list helps you in choosing the perfect school. Remember, schools can have a great influence on your child’s future. Therefore, you must choose wisely.
