Did You Check Out Multiple Elementary Schools before Selecting One?

Home and School Partnerships Symbol by Jennifer MillerSelecting a kindergarten can be a big decision for those who are fortunate enough to have choices. Not only is it a commitment to one grade level, but your child/children and your family may want to remain in a school and district through middle school or even beyond. Private? Public? Charter? Montessori? Religious? There are a number of options. Does the school have a caring environment? Does it have a rigorous curriculum? I am collaborating with Edutopia – The George Lucas Educational Foundation – to learn from your experiences.

  • What were your considerations when you looked at schools?
