Family Involvement

Family Involvement Image
At Benjamin E. Mays IB World School, we believe in partnership between home and school. We have an open door policy. We encourage families to visit our classrooms. Please remember when visiting that a teacher may not have time to talk with you immediately as they spend much of the day actively teaching our many young inquirers. We want teachers to focus on teaching whenever students are present. We encourge you to make notes and contact the teacher at a later time by e-mail, phone, or text.  This will allow them to give your comments and questions their full attention. 
We value feedback from parents. Thank you for taking an active role in education. 

Translation and Interpretation

We embrace our diversity. All school documents can be translated or interpreters made available upon request
