A child spends the majority of the time in a school; also since these are the developmental years of their lives, they must be admitted to the right place. A school has a crucial role to play in the overall development of a child; also school helps in molding the child into a good citizen.

However, being a parent or guardian, it becomes a confusing task to look out for the good schools. When we are aware of the characteristics to be looked for in a good school, we can surely go for the options which are not only good but also suitable for our kids. 

To help you find the best and the most suitable school for your kids, here is a mention of some of the characteristics of a good school:

Academic excellence

Academic excellence is one of the major deciding factors when looking for a good school. Getting a good education from a renowned institute helps in shaping the future of kids in the best way possible. The academic excellence of the students solely depends on the curriculum of the school. And the curriculum of a school is decided by the board to which a certain school is affiliated. There are several boards to which the schools are affiliated in India like CBSE board, ICSE board, International Boardand other state boards.

Co-curricular activities

The schools which focus on the overall development of the students encourage the students to take part in almost every co-curricular activity. These activities help in shaping the future of the students along with polishing their hidden talents and skills other than studies. Such activities might include cultural as well as sports events. Apart from these, such activities help in developing leadership qualities as well as team spirit in the students.

Moral development

It is equally important that schools take initiative to teach the students the ability to differentiate between right and wrong. This further helps the students make constructive decisions in the future. Also, they should be taught to develop socially as well as environmental consciousness, so that they too can contribute towards the welfare of the society. 

Cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, and Delhi have several renowned schools which are affiliated to the International Board, CBSE board, ICSE board, and boards of other states. However, more than the board, as a parent, you need to focus on the overall infrastructure and teaching pedagogy of the school to ensure the overall development of your kid.
