School

The school understands the importance of the school experience to every scholar and their role as educators and models. Therefore, the school agrees to carry out the following responsibilities to the best of their ability. 

As a school we will:

  • Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the children to meet and exceed the State academic standards
  • Address the importance of communication between teachers and parents on an ongoing basis through, at a minimum—
    • parent-teacher conferences in elementary schools, at least annually, during which the child’s achievement shall be discussed
    • frequent reports to parents on their children’s progress;
    • reasonable access to staff, opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s class, and observation of classroom activities; and
    • Ensuring regular two-way, meaningful communication between family members and school staff and, to the extent practicable, in a language that family members can understand via weekly class newsletters, regular school web page updates and regular parent updates via email from the Head of Schools.
  • Treat each child and family with dignity and respect
  • Strive to address the individual needs of the scholar
  • Offer curriculum nights, extra-curricular events and family activities to promote reading, math and home-school connections.
  • Provide a safe, positive and healthy learning environment
  • Assure every scholar access to quality learning experiences
  • Coach scholars on how to become responsible citizens and life-long learners
  • Assure that the school staff communicates clear expectations for performance to both scholars and parents with consistent and regular grade documentation via Power School and Canvas
