Moscow - School Report Question and Answers

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

Overall the communication is good. The school sends a weekly newsletter with updates from each division. Communication from individual teachers is probably hit and miss, but overall teachers do a good job of communicating with families. - Jan 2021

A+teachers respond quickly to emails.Teacher have always been willing to meet with me, whenever necessary.Parent-teacher conferences constantly. - Dec 2012

Depends. For me, I'd give it a B+. Some teachers were great, others only so so. The administration was very good at communicating. Parents roamed the halls and dropped in to talk to teachers and it was encouraged, so in that way A+. But sometimes parents don't know all that they maybe should know, so though not in my case, maybe some parents felt that way with some teachers. - Nov 2012

B: Most parents are happy. As my oldest is entering high school just now, I have to say I'm a bit in the dark about what he has to do and I'd have appreciated a "hello parent of a new high school student" email or something to tell me what he has to do. He hasn't gotten anything either. But at the lower levels, there's good communication, I believe. - Aug 2010
