If you’re a foreign-trained professional who is worried about finding a good school for their child, there is no need to stress. A good staffing agency will help you along the way with this process to ensure you are living in safe and adequate housing near to a school where your child can succeed.
If you want to get a head start and look into schools, you should think about the following tips.
Think about your child’s needs
Does you child have a learning disability that might require more special, individualized attention? Does your child succeed and need to be in a class that challenges them? Perhaps your child is a true artist and belongs in a school with a specialty program for the arts. Really take into consideration your child’s strengths and weaknesses, which can help you place them in a school that will fit them better.
Think about extracurricular activities
Does you child really enjoy playing sports? When looking at schools, take into account your child’s hobbies. Each school offers different sports teams, clubs, and groups where your child can make friends and have something fun to do after school. As a child of a foreign-trained healthcare professional from another country, these extracurricular activities can be a great way for them to form friendships with other school children.
Think about the size of the school
Depending on the location of where you will be living, you might have a few options of where to enroll your child in school. One factor to think about is the amount of students the school currently has enrolled. Larger schools might mean more activities, classes offered, and groups/clubs. On the other hand, smaller schools allow for less students per classroom, which means more time from a teacher can be dedicated to your child during class.
Try and visit the school before making a choice
Before you decide to enroll your child, take some time to visit the school campuses and see which you think your child would like the best. This allows you to see how people interact on a day to day basis, how the staff speaks to parents and students, and what kind of environment the school offers for your child.
