We have discussed some of the questions that parents and children applying to NYC Firm Schools need to ask themselves when choosing the right acedemic establishment to meet their family’s needs. Focusing on the type of schools and the environments that the schools offer is one of the first tools that families use when weeding out the almost never-ending list of potential Firm Schools within their area. Co-ed, not co-ed, traditional, liberal, religious based, religiously diverse… all of these are used as pointers to put parents and children on the right path to choosing their schools to apply to.
Location, Location, Location!!
When you have a potential list of schools that meet the right criteria for your child, you then need to look at one often forgotten about factor. The issue of location is one that many parents leave until last, but in fact it should be up there at the top of your deciding factors list. It makes no sense to spend all the time researching a school and having your child pin their hopes on a particular school if, in fact, there is no reasonable way to get your child to and from that school every day due to location factors.
There are a few schools that are wildly popular among parents because, in addition to a top rate educational experience, the schools also offer fast and efficient transportation to and from a variety of spots in the city, enabling parents to depend on their child getting to school and getting themselves to work on time.
