As Your School Search Begins…

As the end of 2017 draws closer, many of you are beginning the school search. It can be overwhelming at times to even decide what schools to apply to, never mind the paperwork that goes along with each application.

Parents are often unsure of schools they should apply for or are so decided on one school, that they don’t consider the need for a back up plan.

While I don’t suggest applying to a school that you wouldn’t be satisfied having your child attend, I do recommended not only applying to your child’s dream school. Especially because many times as your child attends their school interviews and play dates, you find that your dream school doesn’t match theirs.

Additionally, as many parents start to spend time at various school campuses, they find the school which was their front runner is now moving to their second choice, or even off their list.

I recommend parents apply to three schools. Statistically from what I’ve seen in the last 8 years in doing this, it’s a fairly safe bet that you will be accepted to 1 or 2 out of the 3 schools you’ve applied to. This allows you to then examine each school more closely and really evaluate your child’s needs with what the school offers.

Feel free to email us with any of your school placement needs. With our students attending various private schools throughout the area, we are happy to share our experiences with you and answer any questions.
