Now that your feet are planted firmly on the ground and you’ve brushed off the holidaze, it’s time to start planning for the 2013-2014 school year. Whether you’re new to town, thinking about making a switch or about to send your little one off to school for the very first time, we’ve put together two handy little spreadsheets for you to use as you navigate New Orleans’ school admissions, tuitions and deadlines. Yay, fun.
A few things to note about these lists:
We included the most notable schools and early childhood programs. If your school is not included, please email us so we can add them.
Other things to ask about on tours that are not included in the spreadsheet:
- Student/teacher ratios: We felt like each school determined this number differently and the numbers can change throughout the school day depending on the subject. For example, an 18:1 ratio might make sense in a P.E. class but may not work for your child in a math class. Just be sure to ask the question if this is important to your family.
- Girl/boy ratios: Again, these numbers can change within a school year and/or classroom. Depending on your child’s personality, this breakdown could be important to ask about.
- Here’s an overview of eleven education models available in the city.
Hope this helps!
