How would you rate the school's support and welcome/integration of new students and their families, and why?

Before transitioning to PHS, we had a lot of questions about academics and teacher recruitment and longevity. The PHS staff were available to us and always replied to emails promptly. Our concerns were treated seriously and we always received information needed for our decision making. - Jan 2020


High. There was a special evening for parents, before the school year started. Our kid is 1st grade, and it seems that the teacher really wanted to make him feel welcome. - Dec 2019


A; have welcome parties, partner new with old students, invite parents to see school and meet others - Feb 2016


A - Feb 2016


A - The staff and the teachers are welcoming and warm. If you need help, you just need to ask. - Apr 2014


B - The welcome is very warm and friendly, the director makes very sure that everybody feels welcomed and taken care of. I agree with a prior reviewer that a hand-out sheet with general information on what the kids should bring to school would be good. I sent my kids with pencils and folders but they don't need them. Everything is provided at school. - Mar 2014


B The Director was extremely accommodating and fully available to answer questions before I registered and during an accelerated departure from the U.S. So, I truly appreciated that, and the flexibility to accommodate my twins in an almost full class. What was lacking was a basic information sheet describing what the kids needed to bring with them, logistical matters, etc. - Mar 2014


A+There are regular "New Parents Coffees"which provides new parents an opportunity to meet "old" families.Some parents also run a web group to keep in touch about activities, and so on. - Nov 2012


A+ (I was impressed that the school sponsors "NEW PARENT COFFEE" mornings each term to welcome new families as they arrive.This makes the new families feel more at home and welcome! - Oct 2012
