Attending open houses and new parent nights can be a great place to start to learn about a school, but they often do not give a complete picture. Teachers and staff have prepared to give a good impression to the public at these events. You see what teachers and staff are most proud of.
You need a way to evaluate each school in order to test each school's climate, teaching dynamics, student engagement, safety and security, communication, parent involvement, and more.
The best way to get all these answers will be to take a school tour, meet with students and teachers, speak with current parents, and meet with the principal or head of school during a school day.
We have designed a free booklet that can be printed and taken to elementary and middles schools while evaluating a new school home for your child.
