Switching private schools

If you don't find the right fit school for your child. You've tried working with the school, working with the teachers, and working with the principal, and nothing seems to be working for your child at that school; you might want to consider switching. A lot of switching does go on between Kindergarten and First Grade, where people have chosen schools that turn out to not be the right fit for them. They do need to go elsewhere. As long as there are real, authentic reasons, it is not impossible to switch. What does become challenging is you can only go to a school if a space opens up in that school. So as Kindergarten is the entry point, there is difficulty finding a space at any other school depending on how many kids wind up leaving. That is the hard part about switching, whether or not there is a space available. It is possible to switch. If you do see a school where you think your child will be more successful, I would encourage you to do that.
