The Qualities of the Best Schools
Reliable support staff
Good schools have excellent support staff (e.g., nurse, doctor, guidance counsellor and psychologist) who are geared to help meet the needs of all the students. Additionally, the school connects with the best suppliers or service providers who deliver quality products (e.g., school playground equipment, school supplies, art supplies and library supplies) and efficient services that meet the needs of the school community.
Equipment and facilities to help improve student learning
Giving students access to powerful educational tools and facilities, such as computers, laboratories and libraries deepens their knowledge and further improves their logical and cognitive skills. Additionally, the school offers students (including those who love the performing arts) with opportunities to enrich their educational experience and nurture their talents such as going on school performance tours.
Skilled and supportive teachers and administrators
Teachers are students’ role models. They have a strong influence in shaping a student’s attitude and personality, so it is necessary that they possess admirable qualities which cultivate the students’ talents and abilities. Good teachers are approachable and willing to mentor their students in achieving academic excellence and attaining their personal goals. Likewise, school administrators must be professional and supportive to the needs of the academic staff.
A Mix of New and Veteran Teachers
New teachers come into a school fired up to teach and innovate. Many feel that they can make a difference. At the same time, they often have a lot to learn about classroom management and the workings of the school system. By contrast, veteran teachers provide years of experience and understanding about how to manage their classrooms and get things done in the school, but they may be wary of innovation. A mix of veterans and newbies can motivate you to learn and help you grow as a teacher.
