What to Look for in a Private School

Your child is the most important thing in the world to you, and that means that his or her education is the single most important investment that you’ll ever make. You’re willing to spend the money that it takes to send your child to the best school possible. But how can you tell which school is the best one possible?


Don’t worry – here are the tips you need to choose the perfect school.

Types of schools

The first step in narrowing your choices is to decide on a type of school. Parents who send their children to Deerfield have agreed with their kids that a boarding school is best. Torontonians whose children attend RHMS are drawn to the philosophy of Montessori schools. Are you looking for a Catholic school? A military school? As much as possible, try to make this decision with your child.

Location, location

Unless you’re planning on moving sometime soon, you’re probably going to want your child to attend school near home. How near home, though, will depend on what type of school you’re looking for.

For a typical private school (not a boarding school), you’ll probably want to send your child no more than half an hour or so away – perhaps as much as 45 minutes in extreme cases.

If you’re looking for a boarding school, you’ll have a pretty broad geographic range. Still, you’ll likely want to keep it in your major geographic region.


This isn’t just because of how this affects you (though if you’re driving your child to school in the morning, this is a concern with some merit!) – it’s about how it affects your child, too! Long commutes to school are taxing for your child, too. Your child will make friends at school, and it will be tough on him or her if they’re not near enough for playdates (or visits during summer vacation, if we’re talking about a mold, or exposed pipes and wires?

If all looks well on your visit, you’ve found the perfect school! Make sure your child agrees, and then speak to the administrators about securing admission. Rest easy – you’ve chosen the best school possible.
