Frequently Asked Questions About Schools General Interest
General interest schools offer a wide variety of subjects to achieve general, overall knowledge of students. Such schools can be public or private, featuring classes for both adults and children. Whether you attend middle school or university, consider these frequently asked questions about general interest schools:

What’s a Charter School?
Charter schools give parents a choice in their child’s education, where public tax dollars from local, state and federal sources fund these types of schools. Charter schools feature open enrollment with no tuition, no discrimination and no religious associations. Classes are less structured than standard schools, with more emphasis on music, the arts and self expression.

What is the Teacher to Student Ratio?
This is an important question to ask, as the lower the number, the better. Ideally, you want a small class size with more teachers, aids and paraprofessionals. You don’t want your child to get lost in the shuffle, even though he may be very smart. A good student/teacher ratio to look for in a preschool class, for example, is 20:3. This varies by school, of course, and with many schools facing budget cuts, you may more readily see ratios of 30:2.

Can I Set Up a Payment Plan for Tuition?
Tuition ranges greatly from private elementary school to college, but at each stage in a child’s life, tuition is a burden placed on the parents. Many schools have convenient plans parents can rely on to pay tuition installments by month, quarter or year. You may get pay stubs to submit with your payment, or it may all be done online with automatic withdrawal.

Finding information on a general interest school can very easily be done online today. Public schools will have websites up that will describe hobbies that their students enjoy, as well as their academic and entertainment achievements. Sports are often popular and schools will be proud to tell others how well they're children are doing. Teachers may also be listed on the site to give you an idea on their background and qualifications. Ask friends and family what their opinion is on the local high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. You may find that some have to do severe budget cuts and are having to get rid of some activities that you or your children may be interested in. Local colleges and universities will also have websites you can visit to find a directory of the courses they have to offer and the entertainment they provide to their students. While math and science can be found at every school, other programs may not be offered. If you're looking for something specific you should do a little research first to ensure you're enrolling in a school where you will receive the education you're looking for. General interest schools will also list out any academic achievements they have won over the past few years. Public directories may have schools that have done well on tests in previous years which can be important to many people when it comes to deciding what school to attend. Services, such as bus pick up, may also be a concern to some people. Calling the school and ask them if they have any financial aid to those that qualify, when you need to register for classes, and if you can find any information on tuition. Scheduling a tour of a campus is also a good idea before making a final decision.
