Decisions, decisions. As parents, we make decisions all day long. These decisions may be big and small, life-changing or irrelevant, and often as easy as yes or no. When deciding on the education for your children, this is an important choice that will impact your child’s future. How does one even begin to decide what type of educational environment will provide the best learning experience for their child? Greensboro Day School has developed a document, 26 Questions to Help Evaluate a School for your Child, in order to make the process easier. Some questions include: How are students supported academically? What is the student/teacher ratio? How are the arts represented? Is there a cafeteria at the school? To download this document, visit greensboroday.org/forparents and also consider visiting an Open House at Greensboro Day School. For a list of dates and times, go to greensboroday.org/visit.
