The Clifford International School Guidance Office primarily serves students in grades 9-12. We ensure that students are earning the appropriate credits toward graduation, dealing with transfer credits, and provide students with official transcripts. Specifically, we provide the following services to students:
Grade 9: Meet parents of students in groups to talk about university planning, choosing appropriate courses, and providing additional assistance to students who are at-risk.
Grade 10: Meet parents of students one-on-one to further develop university plans, discuss important aspects of grade 11 course selection, and discuss standardized testing. We meet with the students to take interest surveys as students start thinking more clearly about their future goals.
Grade 11: I meet with students several times throughout the year to develop and implement university plans. We cover topics such as entrance requirements, tips for evaluating universities, the application process and much more. Appointments for parents are also available by request.
Grade 12: We help students who are applying to university by giving timely advice, providing document support, coordinating reference letters and keeping students on schedule. The guidance office works closely with students to help them finalize their university offers. We also provide crucial after-graduation support to students who may be changing universities, resuming their studies, or applying for jobs.
We believe that every student has unique needs and abilities. We try our best to empower students to take a leading role in the university selection process because keeping the student at the center of their post-secondary decision-making will often yield a desirable result. No matter where your child is destined to study, we are proud to a part of the process. Here are some of the universities our 2022 graduates are attending:
