One of the first biggest milestones in your child’s life is when they start schooling. After the finished all their kindergarten days it’s time to enroll them for a good and well known school because this is what really moulds and shapes your child’s life. A school is a place where your child finds his/her next home learning to shape their skills and learning new branches of study every day; the strongest foundation you lay on their life. So, make sure you choose the best school for your child. We too came up with some useful tips for you.
Get some advice
You might be having nieces and nephews who are already schooling or what’s more, your own school. You have a lot of options when you come to choosing a school in and out your area, and this is why it’s a bit tricky. So, get some advice from your older siblings and friends to know for good recommendations. But don’t try to make it another competition amongst others. You can collect some advice and then take time and research on them how far it’s good for your kids.
Is it only the primary section?
Are you planning to transfer your kid to another school after some time or are you planning to keep them in the same school until they finish their studies? Some schools don’t have secondary grades so you need to make sure that the school you find has everything you need. This is if you are not planning to transfer your kid. Whether you are finding a government school or even a DSS Secondary School in Hong Kong you also need to think about the private and government sectors.
Is the school fit for your budget?
Everything is ok but does your budget meets all the school payments? Some schools are quite expensive and some don’t. You can get clear ideas of the school payments once you meet with the teachers and principals. Also some schools will help you with scholarships and other reductions of payments due to different reasons and appeals. Make sure, the school is also worth the payment. School websites too will help you with different information on the courses and their fees.
It’s not everything to do with the name
The name of the school is not what you have to focus on. Even though some school have come up with attractive names and shows great results years back will not always be the same unless there are good teachers and the standards are always met. So, think about the moment and its current achievements. There might be better schools with better teachers who work silently in the field and never to underestimate the value of public schools. They come in handy many times.
