The Family Experience
The Parent-School Partnership
Menlo believes that a strong parent/school partnership is essential to the well-being and happiness of our students. Me strive to work together to create an environment that fully supports our students and provides a community culture for our children to model. When you choose Menlo as a family, you do so with a set of hopes for what the Menlo experience will provide. We hope that your expectations include embracing the School’s values of engaging students in their learning, supporting them as they stretch to realize their potential, and preparing them to live lives of meaning after Menlo. Our partnership with you is essential in helping the School realize this vision. When the School and parents have a strong collaborative partnership, the students reap the rewards.
