Parents at AGC
At the Academy for Global Citizenship, we honor and recognize that parents are their child’s first teachers and we must partner with parents in their chilld’s education. To foster deep investment in the success of our students we encourage families to play an active role in the life of the school.
“AGC’s organic food program has changed our eating habits at home! We are now cooking with different vegetables that we had never tasted before. Seth is more aware of the environment and is constantly wondering about what is good or bad for the earth.”— Uzziel & Mirza Gonzalez, AGC Parents (Seth is in 4th grade)
“AGC has changed the way we think about food and nutrition. Leila takes more time to appreciate our natural world. She has learned how to approach life with a positive image as the IB program has influenced her mind, body and soul.”— Leticia Meza, Mother (Leila is in 1st grade)
“At AGC, Maximiliano is receiving the fundamental building blocks for becoming a culturally-versed, creative, engaged, passionate, socially and environmentally conscious, imaginative and critical thinker.”— Andrew Kudelka, AGC Father (Maximiliano is in 1st grade)
“Kaimana is learning another language at AGC and is discovering more the world in which we live. I love this school!”— Tyfannie Beluso, AGC Mother (Kaimana is in 4th grade)
“I see my child making better choices in life. Nino has become aware of his surroundings and the environment more that I could have ever imagined possible. It is my hope that he carries these lessons throughout his life.”— Enrique & Guadalupe Ruiz, AGC Parents (Nino is in 4th grade)
AGC employs a variety of communication strategies. In addition to holding two parent teacher conferences, frequent progress reports and report cards are distributed to keep families regularly informed of student progress towards learning goals. A parent portal serves as a hub of information containing classroom newsletters, announcements from the office, and school news. We also welcome families to participate in our education events such as Taste of AGC and IB Exhibition Night. These all serve as a way for families to become engaged in what their students are learning at school.
Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The AGC PTA is committed to providing a voice for families and supporting the mission of the Academy for Global Citizenship. Their invaluable work includes the planning of mission-related events, organizing fundraisers, and running school activities.
