To prepare our students to meet the demands of the 21st century, we require a lot from our students and teachers. Teachers spend a good amount of time and effort to ensure students learn basic academic topics. Students work through many assignments to ensure they understand the topics in real-world situations.

Help Your Child Succeed

We know you want your child to succeed, but it’s difficult to know how to begin, so here are some basic practices parents and guardians can follow as they play an integral role in the learning process:

  • Talk with your child about the school day.

  • Set aside a quiet place in your home for schoolwork.

  • Be sure your child understands your high expectations.

  • Stay positive and encouraging.

  • Communicate regularly with your child’s teachers.

  • Read, read, read—by yourself (and let your child see it) and together with your child.

  • Show how you use math problems in everyday situations.

Academic Standards

Report Cards

We send report cards home at the end of each semester. We encourage regular communication via telephone, email, or mail regarding student performance. Additionally, to help keep parents in the loop, we will generate a status report any time a student’s grade falls below a 70 percent average in any class during any grading period.
