How is the overall communication between teachers and parents, and the administration and parents? How is communication facilitated?
The school uses various means of communication including newsletters, Facebook, Instagram, and other online platforms such as Seesaw (which I loved!) and Managebac. Seesaw allowed my son's teacher to share photos, videos of in class activities and grade reports as well as reminders and class announcements. In the upper grades, Managebac makes it easy to view grade reports, homework assignments, and teacher announcements so you can make sure your student is on the right track. Monthly assemblies honor IB traits in students, provide guidance, and encourage socialization. Monthly "Cafes" provide information on various topics to parents and give them a chance to communicate directly with the administration in a more social setting. - Sep 2018
A. Good. - May 2013
A/B - There is a pretty good system for parents and teachers to reach out to one another through online sources such as electronic newsletters, Moodle, and DoJo. The teachers have a back-to-school night and are always available to meet through arranged conferences. One criticism would be to have a standard way of communication across all classrooms. For example, the way the 2nd grade teacher communicates is different than the way the 7th grade teacher communicates. It gets a little overwhleming for a parent to manage every which way and really understand what is going on. - Apr 2013
