When a student is experiencing a pattern of difficulty in an academic area and cannot keep up with class work, outside tutoring may be recommended by the school. It is the parent responsibility to find an appropriate outside tutor. The school takes no responsibility for tutoring fees and payments, which must be made directly to the tutor. On occasion, permission may be given for tutoring to take place on campus when a student has an identified learning need as approved by the relevant principal in consultation with the Headmaster. Nishimachi teachers are required to follow specific tutoring guidelines and are NOT permitted to tutor ANY Nishimachi students without the authorization of the relevant principal after consultation with the Headmaster.
Speech Screening - Other Educational Evaluations
In September, we screen all Kindergarten and new students who are referred by class teachers. If there is a need for further assessment, parents will be informed and students are tested outside of school. Speech, occupational therapy, and other educational evaluations are tested outside of school at the parents’ expense.
