Momof3darlings Posted November 23, 2011 Report Share Posted November 23, 2011 One of our members recommended we re-visit a thread that was pinned as a Sticky. That thread was a very valuable one and is here: Measuring Success: Evaluating a Ballet Program. After discussion, we felt it might be better to start a new discussion and see if there have been any changes or additions to how success is measured and how evaluation needs to occur today. Please read through the linked thread but do respond here with updated questions and conversation. The original question is quoted here as well: What suggestions do the veteran parent readers have for evaluating a year-round residential school? Many of our kiddos are dancing this summer at places far from home that offer invites to stay yearround. I can't imagine how one redoes schooling,housing, etc. all in August for September (assuming you can't toss unlimited funds at solving a problem). How do you discreetly find out stuff like -- where their graduates go? how many of the students who start there in high school years graduate there or is it a constant wash of new people as others fade out injured, unhappy, transferred etc? What is the quality of the academic schooling choices? Is the school in the 21st century on health/fitness/adolescent development? The stuff you want to know without prejudicing the dance-based decision of the faculty... Quote Link to comment
