Our Parents

We are committed to ongoing communication and prompt consultation with parents — parents can expect to be advised about all school-related issues. Our school uses the PupilPath website to bring you immediate information regarding your child’s education. PupilPath allows you to view your child’s assignments and projects along with the dates when they are due, as well as your child’s performance in each class including homework, classwork, tests, and projects. Using PupilPath you can also view your child’s transcript and graduation eligibility status. In addition, PupilPath enables secure communication between staff, students, and their families. School announcements and a calendar of upcoming events are posted on the website regularly. An active PTA is our partner in parent outreach, jointly sponsoring numerous parent workshops on current topics of interest to the school community. In addition to being members of all policy committees, the PTA offers teacher grants, student scholarships, and other financial support to the school.
