Ask about any and every aspect of the school and your child's education that interests or concerns you. General questions about the school's founding philosophy, governance and years in operation, tuition, entrance requirements and application process are a good place to start. You might also want to ask about teacher qualifications, curriculum, safety procedures, homework guidelines and expectations of parental involvement. Write out a list, bring it with you to open houses and school visits, take notes and be prepared to keep adding to the list.
For a detailed list of questions to ask and things to consider visit our Open House and School Visits page.
