Factors to consider when choosing a Boarding School for your child in Zimbabwe

  1. Your Budget: On average this should be $500 to $10,000 for any boarding school in Zimbabwe.
  2. Distance: Consider how far the school is from where you stay.
  3. Pass Rate: A student is more likely to get better academic results at a school with a higher pass rate.
  4. Safety and Security: Examine the safety and security measures implemented at each of the schools you consider.
  5. Extracurricular Activities: A good school is not just about academics. Find a school which also takes part in sporting competitions and other activities such as debate, painting etc.

There are much more factors to consider when it comes to picking the right school but its not just about the school. Know your child's strengths and weaknesses and that should also guide you to picking the right school for him or her.
