This is the time when every parent begins to realize that the school time is near. The journey starts when they decide to compare between the American or the global international schools around them, and choose the best primary school for their children.
But before choosing a perfect primary school for your child, ask yourself what would fit my child’s skills and traits.
Do not hurry and go for any American international school for the sake of its name only, but you have to acknowledge the following requirements:
The school’s location
The school’s location is one of the influential factors that determine whether to choose a certain international school or another. You must take into consideration that the nearer you choose a school location, the more your child will be satisfied. The location will save a lot of time in the way to and back from school which will contribute in his/her development process.
The school’s curriculum
It is important to mention that the school’ curriculum is the base of any international school especially it was an American school, and follows the global standards.
For instance, Rawafed International schools depends on Scott Foresman curriculum as it easy for the child to comprehend and interact with by applying the US international standards.
Besides, the country’s mother tongue curriculum is essential for preserving our Saudi Identity and sticking to our traditions and manners of Arabic language and The Holy Quran.
The homework system
Homework is considered to be a load for many parents and children but not anymore. Some American international schools have implemented a newer strategy to enhance the child’s desire to perform his homework willingly without the parents’ insistence.
The health care system
Our children’ health is the community assets so it is important to keep an eye on our precious assets by developing a healthy daily routine for healthier body and mind.
Those are some of the reasons that you should consider before choosing a certain school whether American or International school or not.
