Admitting your child in a school is a huge responsibility. These days so many new schools have come up and it is not easy to choose the "perfect" school for your child. The right school for your child can make all the difference in his or her successful academic career.
⭐Steps to select a school for your child :
It is always advisable to first start looking at the best available schools closest to your place of residence. This becomes necessary from a safety perspective and to prevent your child from suffering the repeated discomfort of a long journey to and fro from his school every day
We have State Board, CBSE, ICSE and international boards ( Cambridge and IB) available for kids these days. Each board is different and you have to select the education board that you want for your child.
Very often parents tend to enrol their children only in the most expensive private/international schools – assuming they are the best, courtesy their exorbitant fees and an impressive array of hi-tech facilities. Instead, you need to focus on whether you are getting full value for the money you are paying in terms of quality, safety, facilities, extra-curricular activities and the assurance that the all-round development of your child is being taken care of in the best way possible.
⭐Academic and extracurricular activities:
Ensuring the school meets the highest standards of excellence in terms of its teachers, teaching methodology, academic curriculum and moral standards should be your biggest priority. Extracurricular activities like outdoor games, team sports, art,craft, dance & drama classes also play a massive part in shaping a child’s overall personality.
⭐Teacher to student ratio:
Would you instead send your child to a school which allows 50 students per class or one that limits the number of students per class to a manageable 30kids?Research has proved that students tend to learn more in smaller classes, have higher grades and also perform better in their examinations and non academic activities.
⭐ Visit the School:
When you find a school that looks like a good fit for your child, it is a good idea to visit to see classrooms and meet faculty and staff. While you are at the school, you should be allowed to visit with the principal, teachers and other parents to get a good idea of what the expectations are for parent involvement, how faculty and staff relate to students and what the overall learning environment looks like.
There are so many questions which need to be answered before you put your child in a school. How much homework is given? How's for does the school deal kids with behaviour issues? Is the Principal open to talk to parents?Ask what ever doubts You have in your mind.
