Parent-Teacher Meetings (PTM) are the cornerstone of FPS. PTMs are held twice a year, at the end of each term. At the PTM, parents receive feedback about their child’s academic performance and have the opportunity to meet all the class teachers and subject teachers of their child. Together, we help assess the strengths and weaknesses of your child that culminates in an action plan that best helps your child succeed.
From time to time parents may receive special circulars from their respective building or school administration. Please ask your child to share school circulars as soon as they receive them.
In addition to the day-to-day faculty support that students receive at school, FPS also has dedicated counselors who are there to provide assistance and support to students for both academic and emotional needs
The aim of academic counseling is to assist students in their growth and development by constructing meaningful plans that are compatible with their academic and professional choices. Academic counseling is an essential part of the FPS experience, as we firmly believe in guiding, mentoring and counseling students every step of the way during their time here.
Starting from Grade 9 all the way through Grade 11 our academic counselors meet with students and parents to create an action plan that helps students make academic choices and also assists in university placement. Academic counseling has enabled FPS students to receive admissions in the best universities in the world.
School psychologists help children succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators and parents to create a safe, healthy and supportive learning environment for all students.

Students may be referred to psychological services by their teacher or other school personnel, or they may make personal requests for services.
