How to Approach "Hot Button" Topics on a School Tour


NPN Tareema
Community Calendar

It's that time of year again, school search time!   Schools are welcoming prospective families for in-person tours and open houses. What type of questions are appropriate to ask during a tour or open house?  Do you have questions about discipline, diversity, inclusion and bullying? Are any subjects off limits?  Whether you are looking for a preschool, an elementary school, looking to transfer to a new school or searching for a high school, this session is for you.


In this session, our panelists will discuss why it is important to ask all questions, how to ask sensitive questions, and what are good follow up questions.  They will also give examples of comprehensive answers.


Our esteemed panelists are:

Erin Woodhams, Director of Marketing, Admissions, and Communications, British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Tami Doig, Head of School, Daystar Academy

Laura Maheshwary, Director of Enrollment (PreK - 2nd), Bennett Day School

Sarah Cudnik, Owner, Kids Work Chicago Riverview
