In light of the mutual respect among its stakeholders, Sagesse High School aims to develop the parents’ profile as delivered below:

جدّد مدير مدرسة الحكمة هاي سكول الأب غابي تابت مطالبته الدولة بإعتماد البطاقة التعليميّة التي، عبرها، تساهم في تغطية جزء من الأقساط المدرسيّة، للتخفيف عن كاهل المواطن الذي يدفع الضرائب كاملة لها. وفي الوقت الذي شدّد فيه على أنّ الأهل والاساتذة والمدرسة يعملون لهدف واحد، متمثل بتربية الطلاب وتعليمهم، استهجن توجيه السهام على المدارس الخاصّة، وتحويل المدارس الكاثوليكيّة الى كبش محرقة في كلّ مرة يُحكى فيها عن زيادة الأقساط المدرسيّة.
أكدت إدارة مدرسة الحكمة "هاي سكول" في بيان تعليقًا على الاعتصام الشعبي السلمي لأهالي عين سعادة والمنصورية، وتوضيحًا لموقفها، "أن المدرسة بعيدة عن تأثيرات خطوط التوتر العالي، وبالتالي لا تعتبر أن الأمر يشكل أي نوع من الخطر على تلامذتها والعاملين فيها".
ولفتت أن "المدرسة قد شاركت فياعتصامات سابقة بدافع التضامن مع أهالي المنطقة"، متمنية أن "تنتهي هذه المسألة بالشكل الذي يضمن المصلحة العامة".
