At Gateway Science Academy, teachers make home visits in order to develop a better understanding of the needs of your child and to get to know your family in an informal setting. In promoting a partnership between parents and teachers, home visits provide the means for improving students’ achievement and school performance, observing children in their home environment, and encouraging parent involvement, a home visit is also a good opportunity for you to get to know your child’s teacher.
We encourage our staff to increase their efforts to involve parents or guardians in their children’s education. Open communication between responsible, concerned adults in the home and at the school is essential to build this partnership.
As a part of our school’s mission, our teachers visit GSA families. We look forward to visiting you and your family!
