Types of Schools: What's a good private school

Know what to look for when choosing a school

No private school can be all things to all students. The best question you can ask: what is a good school for your child?

You are in the best position to answer this question, based on the needs of your child and your family’s priorities.

Will he or she flourish in a small indpendent school or adapt well to a busy boarding school? Is a single-sex or coed setting more suitable for your child? What about boarding school?

Consider your family priorities. Is a particular religious or cultural setting important? Are you seeking a specific educational approach? Only you can answer these key questions and discover, through careful research, what would be the right school for your child.

  • Schools are looking to attract students and families that will fit well into the institution's community. The goal is contented and successful students.
  • Private schools in Canada tend to focus on limiting class sizes.
