Our school blog is a great chance to see what's happening at HQIS in a regular basis. Here you can see daily life as it develops within our campus, browse pictures, and get to know us on a more personal basis.
Last Thursday our parents gathered together for two new Family Sharing Salon sessions. Once again, we want to stress the importance of these online and offline sharings for HQIS families, as the more they know about the school curriculum and methodologies, the more they can support their children at home.
