Choosing Schools - Who can help?

by Rohan Feegrade on 04 April 2016

Choosing a school in Adelaide. Who can help you?

With approximately 100 private schools and even more public schools in and around Adelaide, how might you begin choosing a school to suit the individual needs of your child and your family? This is likely to be the most important investment / decision you can make, personally and financially, for your child.

The education 'space' is very different to what it once was. Schools are now forced to cater to the growing needs of society and an ever-changing and evolving world of opportunity and choice. It is factual that different schools have different areas of strength. No one school can be everyone's 'one-stop educational shop'.

Schools and education are now big business, even here in Adelaide. Schools now adopt a corporate governance model as well as a corporate internal leadership system. The role of the Principal or Head Master/Mistress has become that of a CEO. They are often quite detached from, and unaware of, the day to day workings of the curriculum and focus their attention on raising the profile of the school, managing the assets, managing the staff, managing investment portfolios and dare it be said, doing all that is necessary to increase profits.

Any given school will be quick to tell you that they are the best school to cater to your needs, as they all want your business. This is where the skilled advice and independent perspective from an un-biased expert consultant and advocate can assist you.
