Getting to Know a School

School tours and open houses are a great way to get to know a school you are considering. But an even better way is to visit when they are not trying to impress prospective families. There are many great events on school spring calendars and now would be a perfect time to check out some of the upcoming activities. Elementary schools often have spring fairs or fundraising events like silent auctions. Middle and Upper schools are full of opportunities like sporting events, spring fairs, concerts, theatre productions and more. You can visit a school’s website and look for an event that would interest you and your family. You will get a glimpse of how the students and the families really function.
