Report Cards

Bentley School encourages parents to view their children's marks and attendance using PowerSchool Parent Portal for grades 9-12 or Freshgrade for children in grades Kindergarten to grade 8. Parents are greater connected with their children's academic progress by using these online systems as they can view missed assignments, test scores and connect with teachers whenever needed. To set up a Parent Portal account, please contact the school office for your username and password. Teacher's using Freshgrade will send invite emails to parents with children in grades K-8.

Due to parents being able to access their child's marks at anytime, Bentley School only sends home one report card with students at the end of June to grades Kindergarten to grade 8 and two reports cards are sent home with students after each semester from grade 10 to 12.

Bentley School organizes parent teacher interviews three times per year. Early interviews are at the beginning of October and parents are not required to book an appointment. This is a great way to meet your child's teacher and become familiar with your child's learning environment. Scheduled parent teacher interviews are in the middle of November (Gr. K-12), middle of March (Gr. K-8) and middle of April (Gr 9-12). Parents use an online system to book interviews with their child's teacher(s).
