Assessment and Communication
The faculty strives to help develop a sense of responsibility in middle school students. We encourage students to seek help as often as necessary and to communicate their successes as well as their frustrations.
We also feel that it is important that parents feel able to communicate with the teachers. Parents may send an email or a written note to teachers with any questions or concerns. We hold parent-teacher conferences in February. Parents are always contacted if a conference is necessary prior to February. An effort is also made to call parents when we can share good news about a child’s successes.
Parents receive written evaluations from teachers at the close of each academic semester - at the end of December and June. Each evaluation is comprised of a short descriptive narrative as well as students' class average in each subject. If a child has difficulty in any class, the teacher will contact parents directly.
