Prepare for an Open House


To make the most of your open house experience:

  • review information about programs you’re interested in
  • visit the website of schools you’re interested in  
  • make a list of priorities of what’s important to your family
  • bring your child with you
  • arrive at the start to give yourself plenty of time to explore
  • listen and talk to school staff and volunteers
  • help your child consider all the options and activities available
  • take home school materials (i.e., school handbooks, program guides or brochures)
  • schedule an appointment with the school if you have additional questions


Here are a few topics to discuss with school staff at an open house:

Programming and options

School environment


  • homework expectations
  • academic supports (i.e., homework club and tutoring)
  • how students are assessed
