The Education Act does not provide for people to spend time trying different types of school. IES also does not believe that just trying out a new school is a good idea. When a decision is made, with it comes the perseverance and motivation to make it work. Experience tells us that all students are able to succeed in our schools and that the desire to do just that is often the most significant factor.
We provide initial information about our school and our expectations, at information meetings and on the Introductory Day. The Introductory Day ensures that students have a chance to participate in lessons, meet with teachers and administrators and see how we work. Positive feedback is continuous. All our efforts are geared to help students and parents make a conscious choice.
Just “testing” the concept of our school means uncertainty regarding learning, making friends and becoming involved. Ultimately, selecting a school is a matter of choice and exercising that choice is a right and a responsibility. Parents and students have the option, at any given time, to move to another school.
