How do I choose a school?
Choosing the right school for children is a priority for many military families. Finding the right educational setting for each child requires a careful examination of the available options, whether you live on and off the installation. "Choosing a School for Your Child," a publication from the U.S. Department of Education, offers checklists and questions to assist parents in making the right choices.
How do I find out about schools near my new duty station?
Several quality online tools are available. Military OneSource is a free service offered by the Department of Defense to service members and their families to help with a broad range of concerns including education, parenting and child care, relocation and the concerns of families with special-needs members. An educational consultation with a specialty consultant is available, free of charge, and can help you address specific educational needs and goals.
How can I help plan for a successful transition?
Parents often want to know about the availability of extracurricular activities and sports, or the availability of advanced classes for their children. While there are other sources that can provide some information on these topics, it is usually best to get this information by contacting the schools directly.
