Invitation to Meet our Head of School

While Open Houses are your opportunity to get to know our school, the Invitation to Meet our Head of School is our opportunity to get to know you and your student.

Why

Through a personal time spent with your family, our Head of School and some of our school representatives, we’ll find out how well your family will fit into our community and our program and what supplemental or advanced language resources your children might require to make the most of their bilingual experience. This will also be the opportunity for your child to see our Campus and meet with some of our Faculty members.

When

Once your Online Application is complete and your Application Fee is received, we will contact you to invite your family to come to the school. Usually this happens within a week after we received your Application.  The duration of the meeting varies depending on the Grade, but it typically ranges between 45 and 60 minutes. In some cases we will organize a second visit to get to know your family even better.
