A Message from Our Director

Dear Parents and Students of Harbor City International Charter School,         
Hello everyone! My name is Paul McGlynn. I am the new Executive Director at Harbor City International School. I am very pleased to be joining such a wonderful school and community. Also, I am pleased to be a resident of the breathtakingly beautiful city of Duluth!

I hope you have all enjoyed a fantastic summer and taken advantage of opportunities to relax in the sunshine! Soon, our 2014-2015 school year will be upon us with all its wonderful offerings of community, learning, and challenges. Harbor City staff are excited to welcome students to another year of engaging, challenging, and fun learning.
We are delighted to have a full student enrollment this year. Staff are already busy planning classes, symposiums, plays and extra-curricular activities that are sure to make this year great! Our continued mission in 2014-2015 school year is to retain, and even increase, the high level of academics by maintaining our small class sizes that offer students a close and collaborative relationship with their instructors. We are dedicated to, and will accept no less, then an educational environment that prepares our students to attend the best colleges in the country.

We have an extraordinary school made up of amazing staff and exceptional students. Harbor City is, and will continue to be, the school of choice for those students that are dedicated to rigorous and excellent academic performance. Our staff are prepared to guide such students towards being the absolute best students in Duluth, as well as, beyond our city. We hope you are as excited as we are to start another successful year.
Here are some dates to keep in mind as the school year approaches. We will have our New Student Orientation Day on Wednesday, August 27 from 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Our Returning Student Check-In is on Thursday, August 28 from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. 
Of course, both these events will be at the school. Our first full day of school is Wednesday September 3.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us; and we will be happy to assist you. Once again, welcome, and we look forward to providing your child with an outstanding education.

Respectfully Yours,

Paul McGlynn
