Student-Led Conferences

Each April, Middle School students lead their own parent/teacher conference. Throughout the year, students work in advisory to set and reflect upon goals and monitor their progress as learners in a variety of ways. Our student-led conference model provides a means for students to take ownership of their progress in school and is a valuable exercise in developing confidence and important communication skills.

Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, in preparing for the conference, students self-evaluate on a consistent basis, allowing them to recognize strengths and weaknesses and plan how to continue their growth as a learner.

An example of a student-led conference agenda:

    1. Discussion of student goals
    2. Discussion of strengths
    3. Reflection on pieces of work
    4. Rundown of classes
    5. Wrap-up
    6. Parent questions
    7. Student leaves the room for advisor and parents to finish conference
