What Do Parents Look for in a School Before Enrolling Their Child?by Kevin Bancroft Author
Modern parents are spinning: schools are turning into educational complexes, lyceums and gymnasiums are simply disappearing. What opportunities exist for the education of a child in this new reality?
Primary schools and lays the foundation for a child’s education, basic literacy in basic subjects, and attitudes towards learning. If you want your child to build on solid knowledge, study independently, and with interest in grade 5, take time to choose the best independent primary schools for your child.
Here are the few things you have to keep in your mind before enrolling your child in a primary school.
Result of specialized olympiads: Consider the results of the independent primary schools and university olympiads. The level of the schools is evidenced not only by the number of winners but also by the active participation of students in general.
Unified state Exam and state Examination results. Pay attention to them, but evaluate them sensibly: in the conditions of the merger of schools. It is quite logical that children with different levels of knowledge end up within the same educational complex. Focus on the results of students in specialized classes for which competitive selection is carried out. More than half of the class scored 80+ points- a very good result.
Parent forums. Study reviews about the school, but make allowances for the fact that there are also slightly exalted parents. Pay attention to the content of negative reviews: for some, the quality of nutrition is important, for others- the quality of teaching.
Access to the reception. The opening hours of daycare Preston administration indicates on the school website correspond to the real office hours. There is no problem making an appointment with the director or headteacher or finding them at the workplace.
The personality of the teacher. In the first grade, it is not the high level of the school that is much more important, but the personality of the Preston child care teachers and the ways he communicates with the school students.
School entrance. The theater starts with a coat rack, and the school starts with a security guard. Are you welcomed, ready for dialogue, provide all the information? Good sign.
Turn. if during the breaks the students run and play actively, it means that the schools have a normal level of trust and mutual respect, there is no bias towards strict discipline and drill.
After school, the children do not seek to scatter, but play and communicate on the territory, or are they waiting for the start of the school sections? Anyway, walk into the school after three o’clock in the afternoon and you will see her real face.
Teacher’s room. If children calmly enter this room, it means that the school exists as a single organism and a friendly team, there is no confrontation between adults and children.
"Tea cup". If children are walking around the school with tea mugs and traces of tea drinking can be seen in the classrooms, the factor should be interpreted in favor of the school: it means that there is no obsession with discipline, but there is confidential and informal communication.
