CHOOSING THE BEST FIT
Opening the door to your child's future all starts with choosing best fit for your child. As you move through this website, we'll help you find that fit. Along the way you will be given a lot of different options and asked questions about your child. To make this easy, grab a pen and a piece of paper to keep a running list.
Let's start this list with the most important consideration: your child. Take a moment to think about your child.
What does he or she like?
Where does he or she excel?
What makes him or her unique?
What motivates him or her?
Write these answers down, and we'll get a little more specific.
We know that each student learns differently. MNPS offers different options to help every student reach his or her maximum potential by catering to his or her natural tendencies. How does your child like to learn?
Add your answers to the list.
Let's face it, sometimes we want something just because we do. Preference can be an important factor in your child's engagement and ulitmate success. Things to consider:
Family history at a school
Friends attending a particular school
Your family likes the neighborhood
Particular programs or activities
If you have personal preferences that will influence your school choice, add them to the list.
Now that we know a few things about your child, let's look at the schools. There are three major factors that could influence your school choice: Location, Scheduling, and Programs. The next three pages will take you through these factors and narrow down your choices to just the right fit.
Keep your list handy and let's get started!
