We encourage families and children to see education as a continual internal process, not one measured by symbols. Teachers foster the growth of the whole child—including social-emotional, physical, and intellectual development—and work to give feedback to children and families about all of these aspects. We share evaluations of student progress through written narrative reports, and conferences between parents and teachers.
Parents receive three written reports during the school year: Conference notes after Fall and Spring Parent/Teacher conferences and an end-of-year summative narrative report. Written reports communicate the position of each student in relation to effort and performance within the context of individual and classroom objectives. Writing narrative reports is a flexible and individual process. Teachers take great care to be accurate, complete, and objective in their reports
