It is very difficult for parents to decide the school where to admit the children, as there are many schools with different facilities. They are confused as to where the child should study for 15 years to find a place for himself in life. To decide they will have to know a few details about the school:
What is the class/section strength? A teacher may not be able to take personal interest in each child in class with 35 + students - to ask questions; remove doubts; to explain to each students ; check note books etc.
What is the exam system? How are the exams conducted? What are the types of questions being asked? Many a time the questions asked are from the books , they are memory based, more scoring , but they do not help in the long run to clear the competitive exams.
How is the home work given? Can it be handled by the child or is the help of tutor or mother needed? It should actually be such that a student should be able to do it. If he is unable, the school should conduct extra classes to train him so that he can do the work.
How are the games conducted? Are there enough grounds? Lot of schools conduct games without proper play fields, without separate dress, without qualified coaches. Games are very necessary to maintain health and fitness .
What is the ethos of the school ? is it preparing winners who defeat others or is it producing winners who win against their own weakness?
There are many things to be looked into before finalizing a school. So right thing is to visit the schools to get the feel of them and then select.
