This is the best prep school in town. I have one child there and one who has just left for high school. High school is not a difficulty for him. He is well prepared and well adjusted. After the first week of school, he came home (unsolicited) and said he needs to thank his Spanish teacher for preparing him so well and another day said he wants to thank his math teacher--he understands fully the lessons being presented in his advanced Algebra 2 class. My youngest son is beginning to show some leadership potential, a positive attitude, and an interest in school. I think he will also be well-prepared for his Advanced placement and honors classes in high school. There is nothing more worthwhile and valuable than a strong, positive, humanitarian education for your children.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
