What classes are offered for high-school credit in the last grade-level of the school? What school programs are available to gifted and talented students? What summer activities does the school provide or encourage? What is the social makeup of the school? If your child enjoys band, a sport, or a club activity such as yearbook, what does the school have to offer for his/her special talents and interests.
Ask for the school profile so you can see what percentage of students go on to a four-year college or junior college.
Good luck finding a school of your dreams.
