If you are considering moving your children from a public school into a private system, be sure you are financially stable to afford the expenses. With expenses covered, consider the behavior changes your kids will be exposed to. You might imagine that a Christian private school will groom your child courteously, but there is no guarantee.
Regarding academics, ensure the private middle schools prioritize quality education to set your child up for college and advanced high school work. Some private schools focus on different progressive learning models, such as the Montessori curriculum.
Other schools emphasize STEM learning with a lesser focus on the arts or vice versa.
Whichever system you choose for your child depends on their specific needs, interests, and potential. If your child has special needs, ensure the private school has adequate resources to cater to them. Be sure to assess the schools’ provision of extracurricular activities as they have a significant impact on your child’s development. Some private schools limit participation in sports, scouts, and music programs, while others offer robotics and engineering options.
