Think about your child's needs and your family's needs. Consider the personality of your child. A quiet child might fare better in a smaller school or a school with small class sizes. If you have a budding musician or scientist, you'll want to look for a school that has programs in these areas. Is it important to you that your school be close to home or work? Will you need a school with before & after-school care that is close to your work?

Deciding exactly what you want in a school can be a challenge. When you think about the best school for your child, you may picture interesting classrooms, active teachers, or lots of extracurricular opportunities. If you have more than one child, you may want them all to attend the same school. How do you finally decide what is best for your child, and what qualities are most important when choosing your child’s school?

Start Early- Open Houses and School Visits typically start in November of the year before you want your child to start a school.

Questions to consider:

◊ How far can my child travel to school?

◊ Do I need a bus provided or can I get my child to school another way?

◊ Do I need before- or after-school care for my child?

◊ Does my child have any special physical, emotional or learning needs?

◊ Would my child do best in a smaller school or would a large school be better for my child?

◊ Do I want a religious school for my child?

◊ Do I want a traditional, back-to-basics program or an alternative approach to learning?

◊ Do I want a school where parents are very involved with activities & decisions?

◊ Are certain types of classes or programs important? Which ones?
