Single sex versus co-education.
Which is right for your child?
Many parents spend a long time deliberating over whether to send their child to a single sex or coeducational school. Weighing up the pros and cons can be useful in helping reach a decision. Here are a few things to consider.
The right fit.
How to choose the best school for your child.
Finding the perfect school can be a daunting and time-consuming process but if you tackle it logically, it doesn’t have to be. These five steps will help you find the right fit for your child.
What to look for in a school’s STEM program
STEM is a significant growth area in education right now. Science, technology, engineering and maths were once specialist subjects pursued by students with a specific interest in these fields. Now that technology influences so many diverse areas of our lives, STEM is viewed as an essential curriculum area for all students.
The best ways to research a new school
It can be easy to assume that a school’s academic results are the be-all and end-all when it comes to choosing the right school; however, there are a number of other factors you should take into consideration in order to find the best educational fit for your child. With most things in life, the more information you have the better off you are, and schools are no exception. Here are the other things to look into when researching a school.
I was looking to send both kids to the same school. The process was so easy and I was able to do it in my own time rather than waiting for schools to call me back. I didn't have time to search schools, phone schools, wait for call backs... School Places took all the guesswork out and saved me time.
We had a sudden change in family circumstances, meaning we had to move. This meant we were unsure whether we would be able to find a place for our daughter at a good school next year. School Places opened up last minute vacancies at private schools.
We were moving from the west and heard that schools weren't that good in this area so I wanted to look for a private school. The process was very easy. School Places helped us find a good school when we were under pressure with moving.
I found the staff very attentive and helpful in terms of reserving a place for my child at the school. We’re going to high school next year so we wanted to find her a good school that suited her personality. School Places seemed to have an extensive database with lots of schools, including some I had never heard of.
We didn’t know where to start looking. You usually only hear about the top private schools, so School Places opened us up to other opportunities we could afford. We were able to find a great school in a whole new area.
The process was quick and easy. School Places found the place in the school we wanted. That was amazing. We were moving suburbs and School Places helped us get a place very late in the normal process.
