Welcome Parents and Guardians! We are thrilled that you have chosen Hansberry College Prep for your child’s education. We believe that communication between school and home is a key factor to your child’s success. Research tells us that the most accurate predictor of a child's success in school is the degree to which a child's parents have exhibited three qualities:
2) Create a home environment that encourages learning
It is essential that we have your support. We need to make sure that your child is eating healthy at home, getting sufficient sleep, and coming to school on time. Your child needs a safe place to study, free of interruptions from the television, video games, and sibling disruptions.
3) Become involved in a child's education both at school and in the community
Additionally, every guardian has access to their child’s grades and the results of every class assignment via the Internet through PowerSchool. Every parent should learn how to access these grades and view them weekly on the Internet. We also need to you be aware of your child’s grades. Please review and sign your child’s newsletter provided each week.
Finally, a nationwide analysis of test scores found that three factors over which parents have significant control - student absences, access to reading materials in the home, and excessive television viewing - accounted for almost 90 percent of the difference in student test performance. This parental impact on student academic performance remains through the high school years.
Thank you for your continued support both of your children and our work to best prepare them for future success in college and beyond.
