Mexico City - School Report Question and Answers

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

I don't think that many of the administrators have been trained as administrators or educators. Many people value them because they have been there for a long time. However, I don't think their background lends itself well to what they and the school are trying to accomplish. - Oct 2020

B. This depends on the teacher. We receive emails from time to time from the teacher in primary about stuff going on, or trips or parent meetings or whatever but there is no regular correspondence from them. We also recieve a Unit letter from the Head of Primary about what to expect for the new unit they are starting. This is helpful. In upper we almost never hear from the kid's teachers but they have 8 or more of them. We meet with them a few times a year and discuss how our child is doing. - Jan 2016

C - There are two parent teacher conferences per year. The head of school requires any appointments with the classroom teacher to be made through him. Teachers are available through e-mail but there is no proactive teacher communication and the impression we had from discussing this with other parents is that the administration discouraged it. - Jun 2014

B - It could get an A because the system in place (intranet) is very well done to follow online grades, activities, homework, etc. but some teachers don't fill it and some teachers don't respond to emails because they are not all computer savy. The referent teacher always answered promptly to my emails. - Jul 2011
