Choosing a Private School

Things you need to consider

The following checklist provides a guide to some of the things you must consider before selecting a private school.

Some of the most important criteria you have to take into account:

Draw up a list of possible schools and obtain a bulletin or prospectus from each (some schools provide a video prospectus). If applicable, obtain a copy of the school newspaper or magazine. Before making a choice, visit the schools on your list and talk to the head, staff, students, and if possible, parents and former students. Most parents find it helps to discuss the alternatives with their children and, if possible, allow them to make the final decision.
