It is important to understand the differences between Learn at Home and in-person learning. Due to various factors including limiting screen time, families with multiple children at home, parents’ availability, technology access, etc., online learning can not exactly match what students do every day while at school. Additionally, during in-person learning, there is time allocated in the schedule for lunch, recess, breaks, passing time, and other activities that provide students with learning breaks. St. Mary’s International School researched and implemented online learning best practices and incorporated feedback from our parents and teachers. Our school is committed to providing an engaging, rigorous, and valuable Learn at Home experience for all of our students and families.
