Why Private Schools?
The National Association for Independent Schools (NAIS) is a wonderful resource for parents who are considering private school for their children. Please visit their website at www.nais.org to see why over 400,000 families send their children to private schools.
Choosing a school for your child can seem like a daunting task, but if you know the right questions to ask you will be better equiped to compare each school with your families needs and wishes.
The best way to start is to list out important attributes that you are looking for in a school. Do you want a large student body? How about advanced placement courses? Are foreign language or art programs especially important? Once you've come up with a general idea of what you are looking for it will be easier to ask appropriate questions when you tour each campus.
Although options are limited in the Rogue Valley we encourage you to take a good look at them all before making a decision. Choosing a school that will be the right fit for your child is as important to us as it is to you.
