The training sessions offered during Parent Workshop Weekends always seem to speak to exactly to what my husband and I need or want to know.
I was very happy to be able to set up appointments with my daughter's clinical and residential teams and the academic team and really feel like they know my daughter and me.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are so helpful! I fell like the teachers all knew our daughter, and were very giving of their time. Also, I felt like they were all also able to be positive while still pointing out areas she needs to work on.
Everyone at Alpine is so accommodating.
The workshop that was intended for the level in which our daughter is presently was outstanding.
