“Boston Private School became the answers to my prayers. They offered the necessary remedial help that my son so desperately needed at the time and their small classes of 10-15 learners, were exactly what the (proverbial) doctor ordered! Slowly, but surely, my timid, shy, introvert son became a confident young man.
I remember my very first parent/teacher meeting at BPS very vividly. I come from a place where teachers only want/need to see the “learners at risk”, or the “extreme cases”. Imagine my shock when I was informed that his teacher needed to see me – unbeknown to me that teacher/parent meeting time-slots were scheduled with all parents! I remember stopping his teacher whilst she was reporting on his behaviour and academic progress, asking her if she knew whose mother I am! I honestly could not believe my ears – I have never heard adjectives such as “hard working”, “disciplined”, “attentive” and “intelligent” being used by an educator to describe my son. I was overwhelmed with emotion.”
