Parental Involvement Increases Student Success

Seniors volunteering at the Riverside Food Bank. A trip to the LA County Arboretum. Walking through the flower fields in Carlsbad. Touring the USS Midway in San Diego. These are just a few examples of what Method students have been up to over the past few weeks. But what about the parents? Almost invariably, students enrolled at Method have parents or guardians who take a hands-on approach to their child's education. And they deserve time together too.&

On Friday, April 29, we held a parent's day at Craft House in Temecula. Parents had an opportunity to get together with other Method parents to share ideas and to enjoy a few hours of "them" time. Parents deserve it!

On Friday, May 13, we held our first annual Fathers Day Tee Time at Mulligans in Murrieta. This was the first of what will be many tee time events. It was incredible to see the fathers having such a great time.

We will continue to do more events that help empower our parents next school year and beyond knowing that students that much more successful when their parents are involved and engaged. More on that below,

Engaged Parents, Engaged Students

According to multiple research studies compiled by, children with engaged parents are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades or test scores
  • Graduate from high school and attend post-secondary education
  • Develop self-confidence and motivation in the classroom
  • Have better social skills and classroom behavior

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

Method understands the impact a connected parent community has on student achievement and plans are underway to involve parents in creating opportunities to build that community. Method School's Parent Advisory Committee seeks to provide a connection between parents and the school community. With the support of Method Schools, the Parent Advisory Committee will act as a liaison between the parent voice and the school for the benefit of all learners. With plans to meet once every other month, PAC members will interface with Method staff and leadership to plan events and opportunities to help parents feel best supported.

If you're interested in participating, please submit an application below! PAC members will be selected over the summer to start planning for the next school year.
