This page and the Study Resources page contains a list of critical links and tools to aid parents in enabling their student's success. While these resources are important, they pale in comparison to the daily guidance and support a parent can provide.
Whether your student is transitioning to middle school or preparing for high school, parent involvement must shift. For instance, your focus has to be on checking homework rather than doing homework with you child. And our teaching team is relying on students to demonstrate effort, personal responsibility, and perseverance - reinforcing these ideals at home will enable progress at school. And most importantly, nothing is more important than attendance - it is the single biggest influence on academic success; thus, make sure school is an every day event.
