Academic Goal Setting

As you know, our students have been setting goals for academic improvement and working with their teachers to develop strategies and behaviors to achieve them. This week during Advisory students reviewed their goals and their current progress in order to make any adjustments. Please continue to ask your children about their goals and how to support them.

IBDP Presentation for Grade 10 Parents

The coming weeks offer important steps in academic counseling for our high school students as we review results from the Progress Reports and help students to review their goals. We will also begin the long process of course selection for all Grade 10 students. We will offer an introductory session for all grade ten parents on Tuesday, 29 November. This meeting focuses on information about Grade 11 and 12 courses and all IBDP courses. Our counselors, IBDP Coordinator, students, Heads of Department, and CAS Coordinator will all be present to discuss the many diverse aspects of our program. Parents are a vital part of this process and are well advised to attend. As choices for students widen and university applications become more and more complex, it is absolutely necessary for all of us to remain well informed and connected. The choices that parents and our Grade 10 students make in collaboration with our counselors have significant implications on college admissions and future career plans, and so close communication between home and school on this matter is vital. Please make every effort to attend this information session.

Please continue to read the weekly Yezare Samint for important information regarding our high school program, and please don’t hesitate to contact me at for any matter pertaining to your child’s education.
