Your Role In Your Child's Online School

Providing A Learning Space

With your child, set up a physical location that is dedicated to and organized for school-focused activities. Make sure it is quiet, free from distractions, comfortable, has some natural light, and has a good internet connection. If your child is younger, have an adult that monitors online learning.

 If you are located in Aruba and need a supervised place for your child to complete their online learning, please contact EduCampus, a government-sponsored facility for online learners. 

Nurturing Independence and Accountability

No one expects parents to be full-time teachers or to be educational and content matter experts. Provide support and encouragement, and expect your children to do their part. Taking risks and failing is allowed and encouraged! Don’t help too much. Becoming independent takes lots of practice.

Communicating
with the Teacher

Communication between the family and teacher is essential for a child’s educational success. Teachers will primarily communicate through our online platforms, Canvas and Alma. It is our firm belief that our students will be best served when we work together in the form of a triangle: students, parents/guardians, and school.
