The SEK International Institution regards communication between family and School as an essential element for the development of an efficient education process. Such communication is even more effective when it takes into account the specific needs of every single student. For this reason, the School supports the system of personal meetings with Tutors, Psychologist, Academic Coordinator, Director of Admissions or with the Principal as the best system to achieve educational success in students.
Within this philosophical framework which has every individual student at its center, the School offers a variety of activities addressed to parents and family members and focused on formation and contact with the School.

With the aim of augmenting parent participation in the activities offered by the School, we propose a number of commissions in which parents can sign up and collaborate actively.

The follow-up of each student’s education process by his or her Tutor is the means that parents have of obtaining detailed information of their child’s development as a student in the School. Tutorial meetings will be as frequent as is required by the student’s situation and can be requested by the parents or arranged by the Tutor, by means of the school planner or via the Secretary’s Office.
We always send out a circular indicating the teacher that has been designated as every student’s Tutor and his/her meeting hours. We ask that parents be punctual to the meetings because tutors’ time allocated for meetings is limited.
Under special circumstances, parents can hold meetings with the different teachers, after a special request to the student’s Tutor or to the Secretary’s Office.
On these days, a group of parents whose children are in the same year, are invited to participate in a guided tour of the School conducted by the Director of Admissions during a normal school day. The parents visit their children’s classrooms and the School’s facilities, so they can have an idea of how daily School routine works. After the visit, those parents who so desire, can have lunch at School and share their impressions with the School Principal.
On these days, the School is decorated to receive parents and families as its privileged visitors. Student projects are exhibited in the classrooms and teachers welcome parents and explain to them the different activities that their children—who are the real hosts and guides during the day—have been doing at School.
Attendance is appreciated, since it shows the parents’ interest in the education of their children, our students.
International SEK Magazine and School Newsletter:
Those parents who would like to, can participate in the publication of articles for both the SEK International Magazine and for the School Newsletter. The publication of the articles sent will be dependent on space availability and on the importance and profundity of the chosen topic. We count on your participation.
Our families are essential for us. For this reason, we organize different sessions of our Parents’ School on a monthly basis, throughout the school year. In these meetings, we endeavor to share our experience and offer tools that can help parents in the process of educating their children. If you would like to see what these experiences are like, do not hesitate to visit our YouTube channel.
Family and Friends Day
Towards the end of the school year, we invite parents to participate in a fun evening in which students, teachers and other staff join in activities and conversations. We also invite all of those friends who are curious to find out more about our School. We are all part of a big family and look forward to seeing it grow year after year.
Within the SEK Educational Project, the most important function falls on the Tutor who, after committing themselves to the essence and the methodology of the teaching processes of the Institution, becomes the link between the student and their teachers and parents. The Tutor knows every student personally and tries to assist them with their problems. He/She takes account of the students’ suggestions, motivates them in their aspirations, and holds regular meetings with their parents, whom he/she informs of the evolution of the student and from whom he/she obtains information that can be of help to achieve the students’ best academic performance and most adequate personal development.
If you should need to contact the tutors, for example to arrange a personal meeting, you can do so via the school diary, by phone (96-198-06-50) or via email.
