IB Prep Shadowing

  • Students wishing to get an idea of what a day in the life of an IB Prep student looks like will be able to participate in a "shadowing" day. We allow prospective students to come and spend a day with us, while shadowing a 6th grade IB Prep student (or 7th or 8th, depending on the interested student's current grade level). This provides interested students the opportunity to go through an authentic school day here at Fairview. Students will get to meet current students and teachers, and to get a feel for our curriculum and classroom environments. 

    If your child participates in our shadowing program-- which we highly recommend-- we will provide you with an excuse note for your current school, since your child will miss his/her regular classes. Almost all of our current students came to spend a day with us as "shadows" and we think that shadowing plays a pivotal role in making a final decision. 

    We will offer multiple shadowing dates, beginning in January and running all the way through the end of the school choice application window. Please check back here for updated dates, or contact Ms. Thompson with questions!

    January & February 2023 Shadowing Dates
    Shadowing will take place on: Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning Tuesday, January 10. 
    All shadowing dates will follow the same schedule, with students arriving at Fairview between 8:45 and 9:23 am. Our shadowing students will spend most of the day with us, and they will stay with an ambassador (current IB Prep student) throughout the day. Students will have the opportunity to observe classes, and even participate in lessons and activities. There will also be time at the beginning and the end of the day to ask questions with me, Ms. Thompson, the program coordinator.
     
    Parents will also be able to take a school tour, if your schedule allows for it. Once students are released to their classes, Ms. Thompson will take any interested parents on a 30 minute tour of the school (9:30-10:00am). You will be able to check out some of our classes, see the school, and ask any questions that you may have.
    If you would like to sign up to shadow, please email me (thompsonc1@leonschools.net). Let me know which date you would like your child to shadow. You will also be able to sign up for shadowing at all of our open house events.
    The day before your child is scheduled to participate in shadowing, I will email you a reminder. 
    I highly recommend that all interested students participate in this process!
