OUR VISION & CORE BELIEFS

“I believe that school can be a place where parents and teachers can work together to educate each and every child. All parents want the best for their child. And educators want their students to succeed. I believe that we can equip parents and teachers with the tools and skills needed to partner for academic excellence.”

– Teneh Weller, Founder

ABOUT HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Mission Statement:

 

High Expectations Parental Service is an educational consulting firm whose purpose is to significantly impact student achievement through increased family engagement in the educational process.

 

Our Work:

 

High Expectations Parental Service provides training and professional development to both families and school staff. Families are empowered with the tools, resources and skills needed to support child’s academic success. School staff receives the professional development needed to create a school climate and culture where all families feel welcomed and valued. Both families and schools are prepared to partner with one another to ensure the academic excellence of all students.

 

Philosophy:

 

High Expectations Parental Service strives to shift the way children are currently educated. Schools can no longer take on the sole responsibility of educating children. An emphasis must be placed on family engagement as an essential component to student success. We are committed to having the difficult discussions that lead to strong and sustained family and school partnerships. Our model is based on building the capacity of schools and families to sustain the engagement strategies beyond High Expectations Parental Service’s involvement.

OUR VISION

  • We envision schools where families, staff and community, are determined to destroy the predictive power of demographics.
  • We envision schools where families, staff and community, partner to ensure the success of each and every child.
  • We envision schools where family engagement is an essential component to student success.
  • We are committed to having the difficult discussions that lead to strong and sustained family and school partnerships. Our model is based on building the capacity of schools and families to sustain the engagement strategies beyond High Expectations Parental Service’s involvement.
