One of the most important decision you will make as a parent — apart from deciding to have a kid — is deciding which school to enroll your kid in. With the right decision, you can put them on a path toward lifelong learning, and a successful career.

Parents need to evaluate both schools and teachers so they can find the right place for their child.

1. It’s Not All in the Name

The school name does not mean the school is a success. So do your homework. The public school down the road could be just as good as that private school.

2. Relationship Between Teacher and Student.

You need a teacher that takes great pride in his or her students’ progress and is consistently open to their improvement.

It is important to learn about the various types of schools available nearby, so you can make an informed choice for your children.

You need a school with;

# High expectations.

# Great teachers and staff.

# Rigorous curriculum.

# Vibrant parent-teacher association.


So what should you do next,

# Pay a Visit

# Ask Questions

# Talk to Parents, Students

# Sit Down with the School Head

# Check Out a PTA Meeting

And finally Trust Your Gut.
