Assessment and Reporting
Reports are issued four times during the school year:
- October: interim reports with letter and effort grades and a brief teacher comment
- December, February and July: end-of-term reports with percentage, letter, and effort grades, and full teacher comments
End-of-term reports also include comments from homeroom teachers, house parents (where applicable), coaches, and a grade advisor or school administrator.
An additional, anecdotal report is issued to parents of new boarders in early October, to give an impression of how their child is settling into his/her new environment.
In mid-September, parents of Grade 9 students and other students new to the Senior School are invited to attend an informational and social gathering in the Copeland Lecture Theatre.
The first formal parent-teacher meetings occur in late October/early November. A second series of meetings are scheduled in early March. All parents are again welcome to attend.
If you are the parent of a boarding student and are unable to attend the scheduled parent-teacher evenings, you are welcome to contact the Director’s Assistant at the Senior School office for alternative arrangements to meet your child's teachers.
