Parents & The Poly Community
|Poly Parents are vital members of the Poly Prep Country Day School community. We believe our family atmosphere and our two beautiful campuses makes our students feel the safety they need to embark on new adventures—intellectually, socially, and morally.|
Poly's administration, faculty, and Parents' Association strive to provide learning opportunities and resources for parents, as well as opportunities for socializing and volunteering. Your participation and involvement are vital to your child's growth and education, and that of the entire Poly community.
We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities, which are a great way to interact with the faculty, form relationships with other parents, and become invested in this vibrant and diverse community!
