Join Caitlin Meister, founder/director of The Greer Meister Group, for coffee and conversation as we discuss how to determine whether a school is the right fit for your family.

We will discuss:

  • Signs that a school satisfies your educational priorities
  • Different types of admissions events and when to sign up
  • The “Three Ws” of school touring:
    • Who is in the room? What is on the walls? Why is it important?
  • Effectively comparing schools
  • How to make the most of the Q&A
  • How to get the information that you need

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to answer the essential question: Is this school the right fit for my child?
