Engaging in Your Child's Learning Experience

Whether you have a child currently enrolled in Laurel Springs or are considering online education, it’s important to recognize your role as a parent in this type of learning environment.

The role of the parent—or academic coach—is to provide organization and structure, create a proper learning environment, and promote consistency in the learning process. Parents also act as learning companions, facilitators, and advocates for their children. They help build and sustain a positive relationship with the school and work closely with teachers to ensure a successful learning experience.

Get to Know Your Student's Team

All students receive support throughout their academic journey at Laurel Springs—from experienced and devoted teachers to college counselors.

Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through graduation, expert counselors with a wealth of knowledge ensure that each student’s learning path, pace, and goals are recognized. In Lower School, our age-specific counseling program meets students’ academic and social needs while also introducing career and college pathways as appropriate. In Upper School, students are supported by Laurel Springs’ College Counselors who cultivate lasting relationships with their students and parents, while helping students prepare for successful transitions to college and careers.

It is important for parents to have open lines of communication with their child’s teachers. An ongoing dialogue allows parents to understand their child’s academic progress and help keep them engaged in the learning process.

Following and Supporting Your Child's Progress

Our teachers provide meaningful, individualized feedback linked to assignment objectives in our Learning Management System (LMS). This feedback allows students to grow and learn throughout their coursework.

Additionally, parents can view course material, current and past grades, student to-do lists, teacher feedback, and more through their Observer account in the LMS. Keeping up with their child’s progress allows parents to have productive discussions about their strengths, successes, challenges, and areas of improvement.
