Choosing a private school is a decision that will influence your child’s life for many years to come. It will be the difference between mediocrity and excellence in their school, university achievements, and future careers.
When you are trying to decide between the available private schools in Mississauga, there is a way to make the search and decision making simpler. All you need to do is evaluate the school by a list of priorities.
Academic Level and Child’s Needs
Only schools offering the Ontario Secondary School Diploma follow the province’s curriculum, providing an adequate level of education and preparation for the Canadian or International University Entrance Requirements.
There are several independent organizations, such as CESI (Canadian Educational Standards Institute) and CAIS (Canadian Association of Independent Schools) that accredit private schools for a certain level of education.
The specific needs of your child are also very important. If there are some learning difficulties, diagnosed or otherwise, you might wish to find a school that accommodates those special needs, offering supportive, attentive education to the child.
This also pertains to the question of choosing a mixed-gender or single gender schooling system. Either approach has merits, and the choice will eventually depend on your child’s needs. If there is more need to focus on socialization, then a mixed-gender school would be better, for example. If your child is socializing well enough after school, the single-sex school will minimize gender-related distractions, allowing your child to focus on his or her studies. Click here to read more...
