Our Advanced School Search tool on our website can also help you search for schools with more criteria that’s important to you found here: http://www.ourkids.net/school/school-search.php
Each school has its own set of teaching methods and curriculum style depending on the type of school (http://www.ourkids.net/school/types-of-schools.php); feel free to ask the school about this when you speak with specific schools, and how their individual methods could help your child.
We usually advise when searching for the right school for your child, it is important to think about their needs and interests - how would the school help him or her? What is not working at their current school? Think about what type of school environment would help them most and involve your children in choosing a school where they will feel comfortable and supported, as well as interested in what they have to offer. Contact the schools you’re interested in to ask what they might suggest could benefit your child and enhance their learning experience, and any other questions or concerns you may have.
You may also be interested in attending any of the upcoming Private School Expos this fall where you can meet face-to-face with a number of different private schools all in one place as well as attend information seminars.

How do I determine the schools accreditation, and will my sons credits/diploma be recognized?
My name is Paula. My son is in grade 4 at Thor College in Cookstown-ON. They are registered with the Ontario ministry as elementary/secondary, academic, broad-based curriculum. I just found out that they offer no credits towards Ontario secondary school diploma by the ministry of education. How does this affect my child's future towards his diploma and applying for universities or college. They are not a member of any association, but the teachers are in good standing.
