When it is time for your child to transition out of the elementary school into a middle school, what can you do to make the transition a little easier for your son or daughter? How can you help your child learn his or her way around the school? What can you do to help him or her adapt to the larger building and more independent learning methods that typically start in middle school? My third son is about to transition into middle school this coming school year and I am not nearly as worried as I was with my older two. Now, I have the information I need to help him get through the transition with ease. Visit my blog to learn everything you need to know to help your child.
Did you already try public school for your daughter? There were probably wonderful teachers and other positive aspects of public school, but there were just too many negatives, too. For example, maybe you weren't happy about your child being in classrooms with too many students in them. Maybe you have been upset about the bad language your child has picked up. Even your daughter's choice of clothes might create an argument every morning, right?
Have you already decided on sending your child to a private high school? If so, maybe you have already even started the enrollment process. From choosing a regular private high school to selecting an all-girls Catholic high school for your daughter, here are some ideas that might help.
A Regular Private High School - If a religious education for your daughter isn't a priority for you, then a regular private high school will more than likely fit what you want for your daughter's education.
There will probably be smaller classrooms, and the curriculum will more than likely suit your standards. At a private high school, your daughter will probably be in classes with both girls and boys. There will be wonderful extracurricular activities and sports programs, too.
All-Girls Catholic High School - An all-girls Catholic high school will have all of the excellent aspects that a regular private high school has. Obviously, one thing that will be missing are the boys. That's probably a good thing, isn't it? After all, if your daughter is like many girls her age, boys can be a huge distraction from the learning that is supposed to take place in classes.
At an all-girls Catholic school, something else will be found. There will be Christ-centered learning. An honor code will be in place, and bad language will not be tolerated. Additionally, your daughter will more than likely be expected to wear a uniform. That means that there won't be any more arguments about what your daughter will be wearing to school each day, doesn't it?
If you are a Catholic family, you will have the assurance that the same values you are teaching at home will be taught at the all-girls Catholic high school. Teachers will be carefully selected so that Catholic-based values will be honored right in the classroom.
A bonus about selecting a Catholic private school for your daughter is that the tuition will more than likely be very affordable. No matter the cost, though, your daughter's excellent school experience will be worth every penny you spend.
