  • Signs that a school satisfies your educational priorities

  • The differences among the four types of admissions events and when to sign up for each: tours, info sessions, play dates, and open houses

  • The “Three Ws” of school touring:

    • Who is in the room? What is on the walls? Why is it important?

  • Identifying disparities between what they say and what you see

  • Effectively comparing schools

  • What to do if your tour guide is a dud

  • How to make the most of the Q&A

  • How to get the information that you really need

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to answer the essential question: Is this school the right fit for my child
