Choosing a high school for your son

It may seem difficult to choose the right school for your son with so many different options available. However, the process doesn’t have to be daunting.

Start by thinking about your son’s needs first and foremost and speak to an advisor or educational consultant if you feel it will be helpful in assessing his interests and needs. Then research different schools based on the factors that are important to your family and involve your son in the process. Compare profiles, explore school websites and attend annual school fairs like the Our Kids Private School Expos, or plan to visit the school for a private tour or during their Open Houses.

Bring your son along if possible to experience the atmosphere and prepare questions to ask school staff, current students, or even the parents of current students.  Develop your shortlist of schools your family is interested in applying to and continue with the application process from there.
