More on Elementary Schools
Once you narrow down your choice of local elementary schools, visit them, if possible. Make an appointment and talk to the principal. Most local elementary schools will allow you to take a tour of the facility. This tour should include time watching a classroom teacher conduct class. Ask about special programs and if possible, attend a performance or parent meeting. Some local elementary schools still teach with desks facing the teacher. Others are more modern in approach. In these, students are seated at tables for four; or, four desks are pushed together. Your childs ability to learn will be affected by her or his reaction to the style of teaching. Another thing to look for in the younger grades is learning centers. The younger the child, the more learning centers are often offered. Local elementary schools that use this approach are generally prepared to accommodate children who learn at different levels. Learning centers encourage independent learning. They allow students to choose their activity within a learning framework. Local elementary schools are not all alike. Looking at the state rankings and taking a tour will help you make a choice for your child.
