Academic Support

Teachers:

  • Always begin your search for academic help/support by contacting the teachers and discussing your concerns.  Communicating directly with your child's teacher is the best place to begin.

School Loop: (Students and parents/guardians MUST have their own account)

  • Register at www.ih.schoolloop.com
  • Monitor your weekly progress-check to make sure you've submitted all of your work.  Teachers are required to update once every two week.
  • Email access to your teacher- write them directly and ask questions.  They will respond!
  • Explanations and details of daily and long term assignments (Some teacher) still write down assignments.

Teacher Conferences:

  • If your student is having trouble in a particular class you should arrange to have a meeting with the teacher.  Many issues can be resolved by doing this.  The best way to contact a teacher is through email or school loop.  It is important that you contact the teacher first if there is an issue within the classroom
