Parents are most often the strongest influence on a child's success, therefore, at Glasgow Independent Schools we believe parent involvement is an essential component in every child's education. Research shows that when parents are involved, students have higher grades, better school attendance, increased motivation and better self-esteem. Simple guidance and support can set standards for your child's educational expectations. At GIS we encourage and offer parental involvement opportunities through various programs and events such as the parent volunteer program, parent teacher organizations, family literacy events, grandparent support meetings, annual parent-teacher conferences, parent recognition meals and the parent involvement calendar. If you would like more information on ways you can have a more positive impact on your child's education please contact the guidance counselor or family resource center coordinator at your child's school. Together, as partners in your student's education, we will continue to Guide, Inspire, Succeed.
