Mode of Communication between Teachers and Parents

 Scholars Indian School in Ras Al Khaimah believes that education is a shared responsibility of parents, the school and the community. Eliminating any element would prevent students from achieving their highest potential. Hence, an initiative by the name of Parents Council is designed by SIS Al Seer.

The council is responsible for bringing parents together. You have the opportunity to voice your opinion and suggestions while being a part of your child’s academic journey. Besides this, teachers and the school staff assist parents in understanding the individual’s needs and how they can be catered to after school at home.

Parents Council is beneficial for both parents and the school. Parents act as ambassadors for Indian Scholars Private School. The existing parents often speak and act on behalf of the school to new or potential parents. Apart from this, you can volunteer in school events and fundraising campaigns.

You can also create an account on the Scholars Indian School parent portal. By signing here, you will have access to information regarding your child and various school events. Parents can view their ward’s results, attendance records and much more.

Nevertheless, you can also approach the school via traditional methods. Scholars Indian School contact details are provided below and social media links.
