Family circumstances and the individual needs of your child will impact your choice of private or independent school. For one family, a location on the route from home to work might be important; for another, a strong music or athletics program might be a high priority; for yet another, being able to pay the tuition in installments might be a key consideration. Before you even start browsing through glossy brochures and surfing school websites, take the time to define your child's and your family's needs, wants and circumstances. A compatible fit is all-important.
