Student Progress Reports

Teachers keep records of their students' progress and report to parents three times during the year, at the end of each term; November, February, and June. These reports take the form of a written report card and/or parent-teacher interviews.

To prepare these progress reports, teachers assess students' daily work, assignments, projects, and tests.


Parental Involvement

If a teacher wishes to speak to parents/guardians at other times, they may ask the parents/guardians to come to the school or the teacher may visit the home of the student.

Parents are encouraged to visit or to ask questions about their child's progress throughout the year.



The marking system for all these assessment instruments and for the Progress Reports is as follows:

  • A letter grade for students in Nursery to Grade 2 and a number grade is to be used by all other grades.

    A – Excellent 80 - 100%
    B – Above Average 70 - 79%
    C – Average 60 - 69%
    D – Below Average 50 - 59%
    E – Much Improvement Needed Below 50%
    Inc. – Incomplete

  • A number percentage for students in grade 3 and up. Example: Science 86%

Excellent: The child excels in a given subject or subjects by completing assignments promptly and accurately.

Above Average: The child produces very good work consistently in a given subject or subjects but may need help.

Average: The child's work is above average but there is room for improvement in a given subject or subjects.

Below Average: The child's work is below expectation and there is a need for special attention in a given subject or subjects.
