As enrollment season rolls around, it can be a daunting task to go through a multitude of applicants when your small school may not have the right amount of resources. This begs the question, how can I find the right student in a timely matter? Here, we break down some of the most important aspects to look for when trying to find a potential student for your small school admission.

Intelligence:

Intelligence is one of the most important factors to consider in children in your small school enrollment cycle. Small schools tend to have more intimate class sizes, so it is important to find a student who is academically minded and capable of keeping up with the rigors of a smaller institution. In order to determine whether or not a student is intelligent, look for indicators such as high grades and test scores, as well as participation in academic clubs and activities.

This is even important for younger children and instead of test scores, their previous teachers can give recommendations to provide you insight into what these kids are like in the classroom. Teachers can provide valuable insights into how the child behaves with classmates, whether the child is a good listener, follows directions, or if the child has difficulty working independently. Additionally, the teacher may be able to share if the child has any behavioral issues that may need to be addressed, such as being overly aggressive, disruptive, or having difficulty paying attention in class.

Motivation:

There are a number of qualities that you should look for in a potential student, in addition to intelligence. One of the most important qualities is motivation. A motivated student is one who is willing to work hard and put in the extra effort in order to achieve his or her goals. Look for students who have a strong work ethic and are involved in extracurricular activities.

Students who are motivated to succeed are often more successful in school. They are more likely to get good grades and to graduate from college. Motivated students are also more likely to find a good job and to be successful in their careers.

Leadership Skills:

A good small school student should also possess strong leadership skills. Leadership skills are essential in order to thrive in a smaller class. Look for students who are involved in extracurricular activities and who have held leadership positions in these activities.

Special Interests:

On the note of extracurricular activities, it is vital that your student have some sort of special interest. Having a special interest not only motivates students, but it also brings out the best in them by showing their true potential. Having special interests outside of school is important because having a special interest allows students to find their passion in life and inspires them to do their best in everything they do. Pursuing a special interest also teaches them important life skills such as discipline, determination, and dedication. It is also a great way to make new friends with others who share the same interest and develop social skills. Finally, pursuing a special interest can lead to opportunities and careers that the student never imagined possible.

Character:

Finally, it is important to find a student with good character. A student with good character is someone who is honest, responsible, and respectful. Look for students who have strong moral values, who are active in their community, and who have a positive attitude.

There are a few things to look for when trying to determine if a student has good character. First, look for students who are honest. They will be more likely to admit when they make a mistake, and they will be more likely to tell the truth. Second, look for students who are responsible. Finally, look for students who are respectful. They will be more likely to listen to others and to consider their opinions.

Students with good character are more likely to be successful in college and in their careers. If you are looking for a good student to admit into your small school, look for a student with good character. These students are more likely to be successful than students who do not have good character.
