For some, the second semester of school is viewed as the downhill roll toward the end of the year. Not for us at Mount Vernon! We excitedly begin anew with a full half-year of learning and engagement. This extends as well to ramping up for the following year. We recognize that moving to a new level in the school can elicit questions. How will moving to a new division change my child’s experience? My experience as a parent?
We recently held a Parent University session for grade 8 parents to garner a glimpse into the Upper School and the amazing journey that awaits their child. The following presentation offers some highlights.
In addition to this session, parents may attend a curriculum night for all Upper School parents. They may also sit down one-on-one with the Middle School or Upper School Head of Learning and Innovation to talk specifically about charting a course for their child in Upper School.
