Questions we could ask ....before we admit children in school....
Before you admit your children ask questions to School authorities . Foremost question is of fees charged and affilation to CBSE/ISCE/State Board etc...Other suggestive questions could be as under:
1. Question: How many classrooms do you have?
Observation: Were most classrooms being taught or were students engaged in group projects or working on their own? It's a good idea to keep track. It isn't important that a teacher always teaches; likewise, you don't want in-class projects or group work to be the standard teaching method.
2. Question: What is the average number of students per class?
Observation: How is the classroom set-up? Is it conducive for teaching?
3. Question: What facilities do you have, above and beyond the usual?
Observation: Are the buildings, classrooms, blackboards, gym look clean and well-maintained? While this isn't necessary important for a good education, the way a school is kept speaks volumes on school pride. The school should feel warm and inviting, with student displays and obvious signs of student participation.
4. Question: What extra-curricular activities do you offer? And are students and teachers actively involved?
Observation: Depending on the needs of your child, importance of activities can range from crucial to "nice to have". Ask specifically about the activities your child likes to do and note what kind of activities your tour leader emphasizes.
5. Question: Can you provide me with a copy of the school's curriculum?
Observation: Is it a well-rounded curriculum? What are the optional classes? Does the school provide more classes in particular areas than in others? Is there an art program? A music program? How much time do the students spend exercising? Is there an online component? If so, how much of the curriculum is taught this way?
6. Question: What is the school's approach to reading, writing and math?
Observation: Is there an overall approach to teaching these subjects? How structured is the curriculum or are the teachers allowed to teach what they feel is important? Are students encouraged to participate?
Ask specifically for a list of books being used by your child's current grade. Is it challenging enough or too challenging? Make sure you obtain a list for the core subject areas so you can do some research after the tour.
7. Question: What kind of supportive equipment do you have and is it readily available for each class?
Observation: Does the school have televisions, VCRs, computers and other media tools to assist in the classroom? Will your child have access to a computer and if so, how often and is your child monitored?
8. Question: What is the fee structure?
Observation: Is it matching with facilities? What are the add-Ons? Any concession for more than one child? Mode and timings pof payment?
Overall, you should get a good sense of the school by just being in it for a day, by listening to students and teachers and by asking lots of questions. You may also check the facts with the parents of the school, prominent personalities in the area, media people, academicians .
