Community Learning Program

The IGS Community Learning Progam is a series of public seminars designed to promote informed discussion about current education and parenting issues.

The PTF committee works with staff from IGS to bring together leading educational thinkers in a free and accessible format. The program brings parents and teachers, and sometimes students, from diverse school communities together to hear about the latest research and practice, and to share ideas on how we bring about change.
