Who to Contact

Education is a shared partnership between parents and the school. A high degree of contact is encouraged and should begin with the student’s homeform teacher/advisor who is the main contact between the school and home. When parents have any questions or comments regarding a student’s academic courses, the first step is to contact the subject teacher directly. We believe open communication between parents and teachers will enhance the student’s progress. In addition to formal meetings related to education, there are a number of activities in which parents are encouraged to take part such as sporting events, plays, concerts, and information evenings.
