Can my elementary, middle, or high school student change schools midway through the school year?Contrary to popular belief, you can switch schools at any time throughout the school year. However, there may be some conditions you need to meet at your child’s current school and their new school. In some states, public school districts are required to offer open enrollment, but in others, it’s optional. Brick-and-mortar schools also request the reason for changing your child’s school and can deny your school transfer.
How do you change schools midway through?Traditionally, parents send transfer requests or applications to their new school. Most schools have specific enrollment dates, and students must wait weeks or even months to begin their new school if they switch midyear. Laurel Springs, on the other hand, offers rolling admissions so students can enroll at any time.
What are reasons to change schools?Your child can switch schools if they’re feeling unchallenged by their coursework, aren’t receiving enough support from teachers and counselors, feeling overwhelmed with a busy schedule, or missing the resources to succeed academically or socially.
Is there a checklist to reviewing my child’s first semester in a brick-and-mortar?
Sit down with your child and have an open, honest conversation about their last semester by reviewing the following:
- Teacher or counselor interactions
- Overall attitude towards school
