A parent teacher meeting is a three-way relationship between parent, child and the teacher to work together positively in order to bring out the child’s maximum potential. Both kids and teens do better in school when parents are involved in their academic lives. Attending parent teacher conferences is a way to be involved and help the child succeed.

The Millennium Education strongly believes that connecting home and school is the best key to student success in the classroom. Teachers and parents can use these moments to establish a rapport and a partnership to develop a common goal that focuses on helping children have the best possible school experience. A parent teacher meeting is a great opportunity for educators and parents to share ideas and strategies that honour their shared responsibility in educating a child. Such conferences focus on academic learning, child’s behavioural and social development and individualised education plans.

In the words of a happy Millennial parent, parent teacher meetings plays a significant role in a student’s development and academic success by maintaining an open dialogue and comparing notes on the student’s achievements, personality or behaviour.
