What the Expert Says:

I don't think it is just one thing that makes a school best.  I agree with pigtoria that parents are a key component in a successful school.  I also think the teachers and administration are important.

Hi RKSCHOOLS,

Parental involvement.  Parents who are involved in their children’s school and are involved in their children’s learning and assignment are what make a school shines.  My second grader goes to a school with an API score of 930 and a 10/10.  Does the school have a quality teaching staff?  Maybe  The top of the line technology?  Maybe  An excellent principal who knows how to run a school well?  Maybe.  I do know we have something that make us an excellent school – a good amount of parents who are very involved with their children’s learning and school work.  At least 60% of the parents send their children to some kind of tutorial center after school; 25% of the parents tutor their children at home with various practice books from kumon, scholastics, etc.  

To be fair, a good is make up of many factors, however I feel that parental involvement contribute to a very large piece of that puzzle.

Hope this helps!
