There are many ways parents can gain an understanding of their child’s school experience, as well as provide support to their child and create continuity between school and home.
New parents receive orientation to the school community and philosophy. In fact, MCHS has many educational events available to all parents throughout the year to provide opportunities to learn about the classroom experience, the Montessori philosophy, and incorporating Montessori at home.
There is also direct communication between the classroom guide and the parents. The guides contact parents of new students within a few weeks of the start of school to discuss the child’s transition into the classroom. Also, each semester, parents have conferences with their child’s classroom guide. Additionally, should parents have questions or concerns at any time during the year, they are encouraged to contact the guide or school administrator.
