When people are moving from one area to another, it can be difficult, especially when they have to move with their kids. Things get even more complicated when people move in between a school year. Therefore, what should parents do when they need to move immediately in order to find the best day schools for their kids?
According to the narrator in the video, the most important thing parents can do when choosing a school for their kids is to figure out what the school is about. Schools will only market their positives in brochures, but it’s up to parents to take the initiative and set up personal tours to the schools to see if the schools are actually good.
Another thing parents should do when choosing schools for their kids is to consider their needs. For instance, do their kids feel comfortable in small or big schools? Do their kids have talents like music, sports, debate, and science they’d like to pursue? From this point, they can choose a school that checks all the boxes regarding their kid’s needs.
Parents should also use resources like the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) to find schools near where they’re moving. This helps their kids adjust to the new environment quickly.
