You’ve done your research on Colorado School Grades. Now, you’ve visited the school, seen what classrooms look like and how teachers operate. Take a deep breath, and get ready to think through a few post-visit questions to help frame what you saw at the school.
- Does the school meet your basic needs?
- Will your child be challenged at this school?
- How did you feel about the teachers’ interactions with the kids?
- What did your child, particularly if s/he is older, think of the school?
Don’t make any quick decisions – wait a couple of days for everything to settle in.
Then sit down, sift through your checklist, notes, and prepare to make some choices!
