Don’t Miss Out! 5 Reasons to Attend a School Visit

Don’t Miss Out! 5 Reasons to Attend a School Visit

Whether your child is starting Kindergarten or entering their last year of High School, your school search is all about finding the best fit for your family. Are school brochures helpful? Absolutely. Videos and school websites are, too. But nothing beats walking the hallways of schools on your shortlist.

Don’t Miss Out! 5 Reasons to Attend a School Visit Whether your child is starting Kindergarten or entering their last year of High School, your school search is all about finding the best fit for your family.

Whether your child is starting Kindergarten or entering their last year of High School, your school search is all about finding the best fit for your family. Are school brochures helpful? Absolutely. Videos and school websites are, too. But nothing beats walking the hallways of schools on your shortlist.

Here’s why:

1. Observe students and teachers in action. Are the students engaged? Is the instruction stimulating?

2. Get on-the-spot answers to your questions. Forget the potential delay of emails and phone calls, and get quick answers to your questions in person.

3. Learn about the school with people who know it best. What do students, parents, and teachers have to say about their experience? Find out by exploring the school with them.

4. Gauge the school atmosphere. You’ll be able to get a feel for the school community and whether it jives with your family.

5. Get to know the admissions team. Your application says a lot, but your presence is just as helpful for the admissions team to learn more about your family’s educational needs.

So, visit us!

There are a number of ways to see BISC South Loop before the January 9, 2017, deadline for admissions applications. We’d love to meet you!
