EPCS helds gatherings to support families in navigating the process of school selection after Eliot-Pearson.
The purpose of these gathering is to help demystify the process of school selection and to offer a list of considerations involved in the decision-making process from parent alums. The choice of school is a personal one – only families can know what is the best choice for their child. As families start to think about some of these issues, the school, teachers and parent alums are used as resources.
We strive to support parents in this very important transition and our event “Life After Eliot-Pearson” is one of them. During this event, a panel of former Children’s School parents share their experiences and discuss factors to consider while transitioning to another school, advocating for your child in a school setting, and how change affects children and adults, and strategies for a smooth transition.
Parents provide a brief background information of the school they chose, why they chose the specific school, the nature of their transition, what worked well and what was challenging, looking back -what would they have done differently, and what is their advice to families transitioning from EPCS.
