A WORD TO PARENTS
Research shows that children do better in school when parents talk often with teachers and become involved in the school. Close communications between parents and teachers help children in many ways. As an added bonus, by participating actively in the school programmes/ school activities/ events parents also get an opportunity to relive their childhood once again with their child. Isn’t that a celebration of learning and childhood, both going hand-in-hand?
JMIS is a child-centred and parent-friendly school that strongly believes in propagating the school community culture across the length and breadth of its multi-dimensional curriculum. For us, parents are an integral part of the progress-graph of our children.
We appreciate the enthusiasm with which our parents collaborate with all our school’s curriculum – ‘SHIKSHANTARAM’, we value the thoughtful approach with which our parents' trust, understand & appreciate our innovative and out-of-box learning programme. Your support and belief in us is in fact our strength, without which is intrinsic to our aim of bringing a transformation in Education for a child.
We look forward to similar support and collaboration from all our new parents who are going to be part of the JMIS-family.
With warm regards
J M International School, Dwarka
