How to Choose a School

choosingWondering how to decide if a school is right for your child and for you?

While not everyone has school choices available in their districts or communities, many parents explore options if and when they can. And whether you are looking at public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, or considering private or parochial education, you’re bound to have questions about making the right choice for your child.

To assist you with your search, we asked principals, teachers and professors of education to help us develop a list of what to ask and what to look for.
