How to Choose a School

  • Quality schools are the BEST way to find a high-standards neighborhood.
  • Don't assume real estate and home values relate to school quality, they are just ONE indication.
  • Ask what the school offers that might serve your child's interests and special needs.
  • Be sure to enroll bright children in a school that challenges them. See warning below.
  • What competitions and awards have the students won lately?
  • Speak to the Principal. Look for high standards (expectations) and past accomplishments.
  • Check what schools your kids will likely graduate to, and those schools level of accomplishment.
  • In high schools, ask about the number of scholarships, Merit scholars, college-bound (or the appropriate group for your child) test scores. 
  • Remember that average test scores are influenced by a number of factors that may not affect you, but they can give some indication of the overall standards of the school and its students.
  • How did your prospective teacher's class fare on last year's tests?
  • If you meet a teacher on the street, ask which schools get the best teachers, and why.
  • Understand that most people mistakenly say their school is the best, regardless of actual merit. Probe.
  • Check for clean facilities as one indication of high standards.
  • Check actual (not average) class sizes, but remember some large classes are effective.
  • Ask for the "incident" (crime) reports. Are small incidents tolerated/ignored?
  • What percent of teachers have degrees in their specific subject area? How many "out of field"?
  • How soon must homework be graded and returned? Is poor grammar/spelling tolerated?
  • Pick up a copy of the school's publication to see what's on everyone's mind.
  • Ask what percent of teachers still belong to a union. In Florida, only 1/3 belong.
  • A Nation At Risk detailed necessary reforms. How is this school doing?
  • Demand excellence! - American schools rank dead last in math and science. Learn the facts.
  • Be wary of "We're #1" syndrome that grips most schools, even when they are dead last.
  • Expect performance without grade inflation. Note incoming freshman scores at UCF.

Warning: Florida's measurement and bonus system encourages parents of bright students to enroll in a school that challenges them. School funding formula penalizes if the range of FCAT test scores is too great. Your child will be more welcome in a school where students attain similar test scores.

Moving mid-year? If you are moving in the middle of a school year and worry about impacting your children's grades, consider finishing the year in homeschool. It will ease the transition and give your child a jump on next year.

STANDARDS: The federal government has conspired with Big Education to cram a totally untested set of mandates down the throats of teachers and parents. Common Core, which morphs into other names as opposition rises, seeks to impose a "one size fits all" nationwide disaster. Follow the Money! Book publishers and testing companies developed a slick marketing campaign to sell the scheme, and sell billions of dollars of totally revised books and tests. Contents of the dumbed-down curriculum horrify those who have actually studied the changes in detail. Question: When you are dead last, why not FOLLOW what is working in 8 Pacific Rim countries who consistently score at the top, instead of trusting Washington, DC to divine where the untested bleeding edge of education ought to be?

Brevard Virtual School (K-12)

Brevard buys curriculum from two providers K12.com (K-8), and Kaplan (9-12). The Virtual School is publicly funded - there is no tuition!

K12.com (K-8) 866-609-9574

Highest-scoring online school in Florida! Affiliated with Bill Bennett's Ką˛ International Academy K12.com. Selected as the K-8 provider for Brevard's public Virtual School (see below). Florida school districts have the option to choose the provider for their online programs. This list shows the waiting list for Florida counties that have chosen Ką˛. Tell Florida legislators to make more slots available! Till then, or if you do not qualify, you can purchase curriculum directly. Some parents give their students special courses as gifts!

Webb note: I have personally reviewed this curriculum and can say it is the finest education available -- due to a core of classical books, and a self-improving feedback process rivaling any world-class company.

Home Schooling

Today, the highest-quality choice is home schooling. Each child progresses at their fastest pace in each subject - without getting bored or left behind. Your family is not tied to a school schedule, or to a neighborhood school.

Progress Report 2009 says homeschoolers who participated in 15 standardized achievement tests scored 37 percentile points above public school students. Universities say their top entrance exam scores, and most successful students, come from homeschool. Most universities eagerly recruit homeschoolers. Here's shocking news from John Taylor Gatto, former New York Teacher of the Year, showing why every parent should seriously consider homeschool. And now homeschool can be FREE - see Virtual Schools above.

Socialization flourishes in homeschool Associations, away from the stampeding heard. When you meet a kid who can look you in the eye and carry an intelligent conversation, chances are they are homeschooled - try it. Myths About Online Learning may surprise you.

These are great resources:

Florida supports homeschooling -- see Department of Education Home Education page.

Building Choice.Org is designed to help implement and maintain public school choice programs.

Exodus Mandate encourages parents to leave government schools. Order The Harsh Truth About Public Schools.

The Army now offers qualifying home school graduates the same enlistment incentives as traditional high school graduates, including cash bonuses up to $40,000 for enlistments of three or more years and the Army College Fund, which provides up to $71,424 for college.

Primary and Secondary Schools - Public Brevard County Schools 

 

Brevard's government-run schools rank #1 among counties on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), behind some tiny counties near the Georgia border.  FCAT measures broad performance goals.

Registration Normally, the school your child will attend is determined by your permanent residence, but a limited Student Accommodation Plan gives you the ability to request a different public school and 25% of students have taken advantage. Alternate and Choice Schools do not depend on your living nearby. School assignment should be discussed with the School Board office. See also District Maps. Florida Department of Education Choice Office

Schools of Choice vs. Charter Schools Two types of government schools attempt to differentiate their program from standard public schools in response to the School Choice movement. Those marked "Schools of Choice" are special-focus government schools allowed to uphold application criteria and acceptance standards.  Charter schools operate privately under their own board of directors, free of most bureaucratic regulations, under a performance contract, or charter, that specializes in a different focus or method of delivery;  however, Charters must accept all applicants if there is room. The school board supervises both of these "competitors". Both generally have a waiting list. Instead of selecting purely on merit, they unfortunately employ a lottery, but give preference to siblings.

When your child enters kindergarten or first grade you will be required to show a birth certificate. All new students must submit proof of residence, immunization records, and the results of a recent (1 year) physical. Most local doctors have the forms. At registration, the school will make arrangements for obtaining your child's transfer records. Social Security numbers are requested, but cannot be required.
