US Curriculum Night
Virtual Curriculum Night for Students & Parents (grades 8-11)
Tuesday, February 2
Welcome, Overview of the Evening, and Student Panel 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. for Rising Grade 9 Families
Open Curriculum Q & A - Session 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This “Open House” is mandatory for the class 2025 (current grade 8/rising grade 9) and open to, but not a mandatory, for students and parents in grades 9-11.
Meet Department Chairs and Program Directors to gather information about academic and extracurricular programs, ask questions about sequences and requirements, and learn about options as they move to upper school. We know this approach helps families focus on particular areas of concern and gain a better understanding of the course selection process.
Class Deans and Department Chairs will present the curriculum available to the girls for their specialties, detail requirements and prerequisites, and answer the girls' questions during class meetings. We know this clarifies process and reduces the stress of the course selection process. Parents will receive an email from their daughter's advisor with information about the course selection process and how they will be the primary support.
Because we want to make sure that everyone is equally well-informed about the decisions that lie ahead, we require that each student meet with her advisor to discuss her course selection. Parents are more than welcome to set up individual meetings with their daughter's advisor to partake in this process if they desire. These advisor meetings will happen sometime after Spring break between April 6-9, 2021. Once they have met with their advisor, the girls will then be required to get a parent/guardian's signature. The girls will then meet with a scheduler to process their course requests for the 2021-2022 school year sometime between April 12-14.
Parents, as always, are welcome to consult with their daughter’s Advisor or Class Dean with any student-specific questions.
