Who Do I Go To For What?

Students are encouraged to work out issues on their own as much as possible. Your first question when your student comes home with an issue should be: “Did you speak to your teacher or your advisor about the situation?” If your child has spoken to the teacher and his/her advisor, and the issue remains, please refer to the following chain of command. Also, keep in mind that Manish Bhatt is always happy to speak with you about any issues that arise.
