Our Families

Family, the best team!

We believe that our parents and families are the first and most important educators in their children's lives come which is what motivates them to provide them with the very best opportunities in life. At Alegra, we have provided a strong support system in place for each and every family in their role as educators.

Encouraging parental engagement is more than common courtesy at Alegra. It is one of the best ways in which we are able to create a positive learning ecosystem for our students. We have a School community built on parent-teacher relationships and a fully integrated educational strategy in place to ensure that parents and teachers work together to improve learning. The gains in academic achievements and social outcomes are significant. We provide bespoke forms of support to our families through a dedicated team of Personal Mentors and Tutors, counselling, specialised workshops and open channels of communication; a powerful platform for enhancing and extending the work on parental engagement and raising achievement.

Personal Guidance and Mentoring to Grow as a Family

At Alegra, we appreciate that our families have a major influence on their children’s achievements in school and through life. We focus on developing support for our parents in their interactions with the school and with their child. We allocate a Personal Mentor to each family who focuses on providing individual and more specific guidance and support as required at any time. The Personal Mentor meets with the student at least two times a month and at least once per term with parents.

Our families are an essential part of the learning process; they are an extension of the pedagogic process and our aspirations of raising achievement being fulfilled when parents are both involved in the School and engaged in every aspect of the learning process.

Family engagement in the school life

The Class Parents (Matrimonios Encargados de curso), have the mission of walking side by side with other families within the school community, enabling the integration and engagement with the school life.

This year Alegra is proud of having almost 100 Class Parents that will carry on the duty of channeling and encouraging family oriented activities within the school.
