Academic Plan Meetings for Students: March  | counselor@gisthailand.org

Our Academic Counselors are preparing for next school year! 

Students in Grade 9 will be called in to visit with their academic counselor about post-high school goals, future academic plans, and classes that should be taken next school year to meet these goals and to ensure graduation from GIS. A proposed schedule of classes will be created and recorded on the student’s 4-year Academic Plan document in Google Classroom. It is highly recommended that students and parents refer to this Plan when choosing classes for the next school year. 

Grade 8 students will have a class meeting and receive a customized handout that shows them what Grade 9 elective classes will fulfill their matriculation requirements; use this when choosing classes for the next school year. 

More information about course selection (for all Secondary students) to come!

Teacher Feedback Surveys | mrandolph@gisthailand.org
Secondary parents will continue receiving surveys as part of our teacher evaluation process. Not every teacher is being formally evaluated this year. If you receive an email, it will include information about which teacher and which class they teach, so that you have clarity about the teacher you are providing feedback. Please fill out the survey as soon as you are able.
