There are many reasons you may opt for enrolling your children in private school:
If you’re choosing the school yourself, be sure that it not only makes a good first impression, but has a good reputation and is certified by a third-party organization (the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission in Texas). And talk to other parents (and children) who have personal experience with any school you’re considering.

Note to Teachers
Interviewing prospective students as a private-school teacher, you may occasionally find yourself dealing with a take-charge-type parent who dictates what they expect from the school, answers everything for their child, and interrupts your best attempts to get the conversation back on track. Don’t feel responsible for taking the full pressure: admissions decisions—and dealing with difficult people—are the whole school’s responsibility. Before you encounter this situation, talk with your supervisor and some experienced colleagues to get advice (and probably a few healthy laughs).
