REPORTS

Generally speaking, comprehensive Reports are issued at Christmas, Easter and Summer, evaluating each student’s academic and social progress. Short academic progress reports on Third, Fifth and Sixth Year are issued between those periods to keep parents informed of individual progress during these important examination years.

Report Grading

Grades for academic standing follow the Department of Education system. Effort grades indicate the level of the student’s application and progress based on homework and classroom work as follows:
