Events: School events where the parents are involved or invited is a good place to gauge the atmosphere of the school. Hence a school that has events which are open to parents comes across as transparent and open to engaging parents.
Safety: A crucial aspect in terms of the measures taken by the school to ensure the safety of the child, as the child does spend a good amount of his/her time in school. The school should be like a second home to the child where the child is comfortable.
