How to choose a school?
Choosing a school for a child is one of the most important decisions we make in our child's young life. Our decision will influence the child's further development concerning both the acquisition of new knowledge, and the emotional level. Therefore, such a decision should be carefully considered.
What to pay attention to when choosing an elementary school?
Although the choice of an educational institution is always an individual matter, there are several important elements that should be taken into account when making such a decision.
If we decide to choose a state institution, we do not always have an influence on the location of the school. Admitting a child to a school depends mainly on the place of his or her residence and only in a few cases will the child be admitted to a different school – a school to which we apply. However, it depends primarily on the number of available places.
It is easier when we decide on a private school. In terms of location, we have the opportunity to choose an institution that meets our expectations. The bilingual Academy International elementary school is located in Warsaw at Karolkowa street from where you can get to any part of the city within similar time.
Continuation of education in the same facility
The elementary school is divided into two stages: the first stage, the so-called early school, with grades 1 to 3, and the second stage with grades 4 to 8. The difference between them is not only the range of subjects, but it also concerns the guidance teacher or the tutor. In this aspect, it is important for children to continue their education in the same institution. Changing the environment, though important, at an early stage when the child's everyday life is constantly changing, may involve a lot of stress. This particularly applies to children who do not have the easiness to establish new relationships.
In AI bilingual elementary school, basic education is conducted throughout its duration – from grade 1 to grade 8.
Staff and school equipment
An extremely important, if not a key element, that should be taken into consideration when choosing the best elementary school for a child is its equipment and staff.
At Academy International we provide children with space and access to modern learning aids, and our teachers are certified specialists in their fields. Thus we encourage you to sign up for our school.
Access to the canteen
It is at school that the child will spend most of his or her time during a week. It is extremely important that they are provided with balanced meals adjusted to their age. At our facility we are fully aware of the importance of preparing the right menu. Therefore, we have our own kitchen where we prepare meals for children using the highest quality products.
Not without significance is also a program of extra-curricular activities. Developing children's passion outside the basic curriculum shapes their personality and allows them to develop on different levels. Availability of additional courses in the same school is an additional and decisive facilitation for parents.
