We believe that a close, working partnership with our parents is vital for student success and well-being.
Keeping lines of communication open.
We enjoy talking with you about your child. Our teachers are on hand for informal chats at drop off and pick up times or by email. Formal parent teacher meetings are held every term. Our weekly THS Bulletin keeps all enrolled families up-to-date on important school events and announcements.
Helping at THS
We use US curricular standards that have been adapted to suit an accelerated international demographic. Our teachers employ a balanced approach to learning and teaching with an emphasis on authentic learning opportunities and foundational skills. Our average student to teacher ratio of 7:1 ensures that methodical differentiation of instruction in Numeracy and Literacy begins for qualifying students as early as R1. Teachers adhere to a classroom management philosophy that employs positive and engaging techniques from the Responsive Classroom model to encourage confidence and instill self-determination and resilience from the beginning.
