FROM THE DIRECTORS: REPORT CARDS
We have begun processing all the grades and comments for the upcoming report cards. You will notice that the grades will not be visible until the report cards are sent, please do not be alarmed. We are committed to the success of every learner and look forward to celebrating their growth.
The faculty has written comments for each student. Comments are intended to provide character-‐based feedback and support continued growth. While letter grades are not a direct evaluation of students’ intellectual character, they do reflect this character, in as much as the assignments, exams, and other materials on which grades are based regularly require students to demonstrate intellectual virtues.
Comments and grades are not meant to be final in any sense but provide constructive and timely feedback. Each teacher, as is appropriate, writes narrative comments pertaining to intellectual virtues. There is no expectation that students will "master" any virtue. Rather, the comments are primarily intended to help students develop a deeper understanding of their intellectual character strengths and to identify areas for potential growth.
