Here’s a tricky situation: Enrollment at your child(ren)’s school has dwindled in the past 5 years (if you’ve been there that long). The good news: Class sizes are low so your student is getting more individualized attention. You may like it. He/she may not. The bad news: Class sizes are low so your student has fewer cohorts to choose from to be “friends”. You may not like that. He/she really doesn’t like that.
What could you do?
Some families do the obvious and pursue alternative education options. A lot of the mid-level schools (those not able to charge 30K+ or field an entire boys AND girls soccer team) are losing more and more to the big wigs who have a recognizable name with a sustainable financial future.
What should you do?
- Don’t discriminate. Your school is an exclusive club where some people don’t belong…really?!?…seriously?!? Do not discriminate. Let admissions do that if necessary. Little Billy, who plays on your son’s football team, and his parents may not look the part to you, but their family could be a great addition to the school.
