Info for Families
We know that the choice you made in coming here is a precious one and we want to make sure that you have a full understanding of the school’s expectations. In order for students to learn and grow, it is essential that we all do our part. Students, parents, teachers, and administration all have responsibilities to promote student learning and growth. We are all educational partners who must do our part so that students can learn to the best of their ability. High expectations for students mean high expectations for families -- our most important community partners. We hold families to high expectations, and we assume that they will hold us to equally high standards. Families ensure that their children arrive at school on time every day, in uniform, and ready to learn. Families check that students complete their homework each night. They support the school in enforcing the Code of Conduct. Families communicate with the school frequently to share successes and discuss challenges.
