Raising children who are healthy, confident, competent and resilient may be the most challenging responsibility most of us are ever called upon to face.Norm Colb, Head of School
Menlo's parent education program seeks to:
- Present parents with the opportunity to learn from and interact with outstanding professionals in adolescent development. These professionals include both local and nationally recognized experts.
- Provide forums for parents to learn from each other with respect to supporting, nurturing and guiding their students safely through the teen years.
Menlo Parent Groups
All Upper School parents are invited to join a Menlo Parent Group (MPG) that corresponds to the grade level of their child(ren). MPGs are small groups designed to help parents connect and share information and to give parents a window into their child's academic and social experience at Menlo. Whether you are new to Menlo or a veteran Menlo parent, joining an MPG will help you get connected and stay informed. Sign up for a Menlo Parent Group here.
