    Host: Are letters of recommendation required?

    Andrew Battaile: Almost always letters of recommendation from your childs teachers are required. These letters will look at your child in so far as their behavior in class, their effort in class as well as how they get along with their peers and with adults. Letters are pretty important, schools look at them very careful but for the most part they are confidential. So dont expect to see these letters once they have been given to the school.
