How do you go about picking the best primary school for your child? Decisions about where to send your child for school are personal and difficult. It’s natural for parents to feel anxious about getting this decision right.
For some, the decision is simple. Their kids go to the nearest public school – the school in the same government zone as their house. Other parents might want to look further afield at other private schools to give their children a significantly better learning environment.
It’s ideal to first think about what will work best for your child’s personality, needs, strengths and hobbies.
Here are some other questions you could think of when selecting the best Primary School.
1] Is the school big enough to support your child’s varied interests?
For example, Vidya Bharati School is built on a sprawling 4.2-acre campus. Our award-winning campus is equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure. It is designed to always propel our kids to unlock their potential and offers our kids a premium learning experience.
2] What facilities does the school have to support your child’s learning – playgrounds, library, music programs, and sporting teams?
We believe the biggest responsibility of any school is to provide an environment that nurtures and encourages a learning mindset and satisfies the vast imagination of young children. The quality of a school’s facilities makes a significant impact on the children’s future.
Vidya Bharati School fulfills its 360-degree education plan with the help of world class facilities.
Our school’s campus features a science & technology park, an art workstation, high-tech computer labs, latest CCTV for safety monitoring, real time GPS tracking for buses, a well-qualified trained faculty, an E-library with rich collection of books, dance & music studio, and Olympic sized grounds and courts for sports like Hockey, Football, Volleyball and Basketball.
3] Has the school improved its academic results over the past few years?
The best primary schools consistently see a rise in the overall graduation percentages. At Vidya Bharati School, we are proud to have touched a 100% graduation percentage since the last couple of years. It’s one of the reasons why we were honoured with a Top 10 schools in Ghaziabad’s award under Times School Survey 2019.
4] What’s the teacher to student ratio of the school?
Teacher Student ratio is the number of teachers divided by the number of students who attend a classroom. With a ratio of 1:20, VBS’s teacher student ratio is much above our national average. It indicates that there are only 20 students for every one teacher.
One can pretty much guarantee that a single teacher will do a much better job of giving personal attention to 20 kids, than, let’s say a hundred.
Numerous studies have shown that lower student teacher ratios are better for teaching students fundamental subjects. When a teacher has fewer students to attend, minute details can be quickly picked up on. As a result, your child is much likelier to have higher success rates.
5] What about the school’s performance in other areas like the arts, sport or community engagement?
A focus on extracurricular activities and sports is essential for a holistic development of your children.
We regularly organize events and carnivals to help our kids express their creativity without feeling anxious. Additionally, thanks to the emphasis on infrastructure aided preparation, the past couple of years have been a roaring success for our football and Taekwondo teams. Our Taekwondo team has won us several trophies at the state and national level championships with its display of coordination and discipline.
6] Does the school innovate and keep up with the changing technology?
Our use of interactive teaching aids, and smart classrooms was lauded at the recently concluded Times School Survey, 2019. The use of audio-visual aids in teaching leaves an ineradicable mark on students’ minds and learning becomes more effective as seeing is believing.
To leave students with an everlasting impact on their memory, each classroom of our school is equipped with smart board to help students learn every notion in the best possible way.
7] What is the teaching philosophy of the school?
You should also consider the school’ values when it comes to teaching.
For example, all our learning rooms are theme-based, designed in line with the “Theory of Multiple Intelligence” that our schools work with.
The theory of multiple intelligences proposes that people are not born with all the intelligence they will ever have. It says that intelligence can be learned throughout life. The theory claims that everyone is intelligent in at least seven different ways and can develop each aspect of intelligence to an average level of competency. Our rooms are designed to make sure that each type of intelligence is being catered to.
