From the school

A minimum of four parent newsletters are mailed throughout the year. The Parent Advisory Council meets monthly with the school's administration. The school utilizes Edline as a means of communicating student progress and performance to both students and parents. In addition, the Edline website has links to such areas as individual teacher pages and a calendar of school events. Each teacher's page has an e-mail link which parents may use to directly contact the teacher. Two other parent support groups, the Friends of the Academy and the Association of Partners in Music (APM), exist on campus to provide support and recommendations. Three new exterior electronic marquees have been installed to communicate events on a daily basis.
