Answers to many Parent Frequently Asked Questions may be found via the TPS links provided below:
Over the past forty years, many researchers in the United States
have examined what helps children succeed in school and prepare
for higher education.
The strong overall finding of this research is that youth whose parents
are actively involved in supporting learning at home and at school
do better in many ways. They get better grades, have higher
graduation rates, and are more likely to go to college.
Parents play an important role in providing support and building the
confidence of their children. Schools and parents need to work together to
help develop children’s success and to improve their school experience.
