Tip of the Week: Parents again
The number one wish that we hear from parents is that they want their child to feel like they are part of a community. So many students come to us from schools where they felt like an outsider, maybe had been bullied or picked on, and overall just did not feel like part of the group. When parents see their kids making friends – real friends – and being woven in seamlessly to our campus community, they realize that all of the sacrifices of getting their child to Latham, and the ultimate sacrifice of having them move away from home, is all worth it in the end.
We cannot thank the parent community enough for trusting us and for sharing their children with us. We are forever grateful for having the opportunity to know and to help your families.
