(Gilbert, AZ) -- Students whose parents are involved in their education tend to have better academic performance, and are more likely to graduate from high school than those with parents who aren’t involved.

While research shows that parental involvement has a crucial impact in both elementary and secondary students, parents sometimes may wonder how they can actively participate in their children’s learning.

Parents with children who attend a school in the Gilbert Public Schools District can get involved by attending Parent University classes taught by Gilbert’s instructors.

The Parent University concept brings parents into a classroom setting where they can take a number of classes to help them become better acquainted with their children’s education.

These classes give parents the opportunity –for example– to know software and devices students use at school, as well as first-hand knowledge that encourages participation.

By attending these free sessions offered by Gilbert Public Schools, parents become students for an hour or two while being taught by Gilbert’s qualified instructors, who are also available to answer their questions.

Classes are offered on topics like academics, finances, parenting, technology and wellness.
