A Note to Parents
The style in which we’ve written this guide is to address everything directly to your son or daughter. This is an exciting time in their school career as, for the first time, they are having the opportunity to make significant decisions about what they study.
This is, for most, the first of many academic decisions that will define their own distinctive path through life. Experience tells us that education works best and that students get the most from it when they are fully engaged, and we like to think that your son or daughter will make their own choices and really embrace them.
Nonetheless, the best choices come after listening to good advice, and we very much hope that you will read this guide with your son or daughter and offer him or her some of your wisdom and experience. We’ll also be talking with students about the best possible curriculum choices for them, so that your son or daughter starts out on courses that he or she will greatly enjoy and be highly successful in. We understand that you’ll want to be reassured about the choices your son or daughter makes, and we’re very happy to talk about them at any point. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns at any point in the process, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll do what we can to listen and help.
