Teachers at Montessori
School of Maui look forward to building a rapport with each parent to benefit
the child at home and at school. Teachers share information through
classroom newsletters which are published throughout the school year.
We enjoy informal
conversations to share news about your child; however, there are times that an
issue requires a parent-teacher meeting.
Your child’s academic progress

Circumstances involving the
We ask that you schedule
the meeting ahead of time and come prepared for the discussion. Let us
know the nature of the concern, so we can be prepared to answer your
questions. We will respond as quickly as possible, and thank you for your
patience. Help us to avoid miscommunication by voicing your concerns to
the teacher first. If issues go beyond the expertise of the teacher, the
Head of School is the next step in the chain of communication. A meeting
including the teacher will assist you in finding solutions. The meeting
may also help clarify school policies and procedures as they relate to the
issue of concern and determine final decisions regarding school operations and
implementation of policies and procedures.
It is never appropriate
for a parent to confront or attempt to discipline someone else's child.
We ask parents to bring their concerns to the teacher.
