2017 Student-led Conference and Parent-Teacher Conference
Date: 2017-05-22

On May 5, 2017, two types of conferences were scheduled for parents in the International Programs. Student-led Conference and Parent-Teacher Conference. 

Parent-teacher conference was scheduled for middle school and high school parents. These were one-on-one meetings between parents and teachers to discuss students’ progress at school and find solutions to academic and behavior challenges.

Student-led conference is very different from parent-teacher conference, as students run the show. It enables students to report directly to parents about their progress at school, with teachers there to assist, direct and support students throughout the presentation process. During the conference process students presented portfolios of schoolwork from all of their classes, and shared what they have learned from these classes with parents. 

We believe that such a channel not only promotes the communication between teachers and parents, it also enables parents to get familiar with the teaching philosophy and educational objective of our school.
