It’s time for your child to start school, which leaves you with a decision about choosing public schools or the best private schools.
According to a video by “Great Schools,” parents sometimes feel a private school would be too expensive to consider. They state, however, that some of the best private schools offer financial assistance.
Additionally, some states offer tax credits or vouchers for eligible families. Private schools vary in what they each cost.
The video further explains some of the differences between public and private schools. For example, private schools select their curriculum, while public schools do not. They also vary from public schools in class size, cultural diversity, etc.
“Great Schools” suggests that to find the best private schools, parents should talk to friends about the schools they prefer. Also, research and visit the schools that appeal to you and your child.
The video states there is an admission process with private schools, so start your search and have time to do the research and visits early. This way, the admissions process is not rushed, and you will be able to find a school that fits your values.
