Learning about StudentsAchieve

At our Annual General Meeting on Saturday, April 12, 2014 we were fortunate to have Sean Cain from the English Language School Board present a session on StudentsAchieve, the web-based system that parents can use to find attendance and marks information for their children.

The session was well-attended and many questions were asked and answered.

Parents of intermediate and high school students can access StudentsAchieve through a web browser at and will also find a page of useful resources and frequently asked questions on the English Language School Board website.
