In this study, we consider a school choice problem and formulate it into a mathematical model, allowing it to be simplified and solved. The results obtained are useful for the household in making an objective choice of school for the child to be enrolled among several secondary schools located outside his walkable neighbourhood which best satisfies his budget constraint with emphasis on the most preferred travelling mode of a given type.

KEYWORDS: School choice modelling; Lagrangian function; Stone’s utility function; Saturation point.
