The dream of every parent is to send their children to the best school to give them the best education. Finding schools can be really hectic if you don’t have one proper decision. The more you do research the more you have chances to open yourself to the number of options. All in all, you need to look beneath the surface and go a bit deep in your research. This is why we came up with some helpful tips for the “school hunt”. Take a look!
The school’s progress throughout the years
It’s important to check the school’s progress to determine how far it’s successful in educating children not just through studies but also in extracurricular activities like sports and social work. Your child should be educated in such different aspects throughout his/her school years not just cornered with a book in the hand. So, the school you choose should be a type of an “all-rounder” in different areas.
Has it paved way for good citizens?
As we said, you need to look into more about the school. If you take check the schools’ online website you will be able to see the details like the staff, headmaster/mistress, societies, community work, facilities, achievements and much more. Also don’t forget the school’s achievements in different areas; whether it be in sports activities, studies (especially this area should be checked) or even society work. It would be great if the school has different societies to help your kid learn more and to help them in their study areas.
How is it ranked?
Every school has a ranking according to different methods and points. Whether it’s according to their studies, sports, etc. you can check how it’s ranked in the country and area. But this doesn’t mean that you have to enter your child to the number one school (its great if you can). it would help you to get an idea of the other schools in the list, make you open to different options and also give you a clear idea of how the school you have been looking for has progressed.
The facilities the school hosts
If you are searching for schools in Hong Kong, DSS secondary school is one of the prestigious schools you can come across. Like we said, you need to look into the number of facilities the school has in order to develop your child’s education and also give them a boost in extracurricular activities.
Can you afford?
Even if you can afford the first year of the school fees are you able to pay for the years after that? Some schools have high fee payments and if you think its worthless, then avoid such schools. With all the good sides of the school your budget too needs to be taken into account.
