How is the overall communication between teachers and parents, and the administration and parents? How is communication facilitated?

All communication is via email. The communication is iffy though. We just finished the 2016/2017 school year and their webpage still has the 2015/2016 calendar. That gives you an idea of how well they pay attention to details. - Jun 12, 2017
A: Good.Since it's a small school, I see my kids teachers every day when I drop them off, and have had three formal parent-teacher meetings.American teachers affiliated with the Calvert program also review the children's work, for example I get reports also from an American teacher in Maryland who works closely with the kindergarten teacher in Paramaribo.I like this increased feedback on the kids' academic performance, it puts their academic progress in the context of the US system for me. - Mar 27, 2011
