Partnering with Families

We hold families—our most important community partners—to high expectations, and we assume that they will hold us to equally high standards. Families ensure that their children arrive at school on time every day, in uniform, and ready to learn. Families check that students complete their homework each night. They support the school in enforcing the Code of Conduct. Excellence Boys communicates with families frequently to share successes and discuss challenges. All families are encouraged to participate in Family Involvement Committee (FIC) events.
