 Some Quotes are included below:

Creativity 
"Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status." That's one of the many quotes that Sir Ken Robinson's made in his 2006 lecture on rethinking the nation's schools. That become one of the most popular TED talks — with more than 50 million views.

More to Education Than Test Scores
There's so much pressure put on parents to make them believe that a good school is defined by high test scores and high rates of entrance to college and university, but there's a lot more to education than that. You want to make sure that there is a real balance and dynamism in the school curriculum.  

Balance in Curriculum Must Include the Arts
We've seen a reduction in things like arts programs, in recess, in practical vocational programs, because they're not subject to standardized tests. The emphasis on STEM — science technology engineering and math — is important. But the arts, music, drama, the humanities, physical education, are just as important.

Balance in Assessments
Also look at the quality of teaching and assessment strategies.
It's about asking what the assessment's are for.
It should ideally be there to support, encourage and inform children's development and achievement.

Environment and Relationships
Look at what's on the walls. Is there kids' work on the walls? Exhibitions? That also taps into the overall culture — you know, what sort of values a school is promoting and how closely does it work with parents and the broader community.

It's outstanding!
