Results of Parent Surveys

September 28, 2021

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our new parent letter post! Please see below the results prepared by Mr. Rasson of the parent survey that was taken in the spring. Please forgive my oversight. I meant to get this to you as soon as school started in April, but I simply forgot.

The survey is based on a four-point scale, four being the highest. As you can see, parents showed great support for New Life. The highest mark was for “Teachers care about the students” with a score of 4.0. This made us teachers very happy. The lowest mark was, “Aware of my child’s progress” with a 3.5 score. We are working hard to improve that awareness by having more class meetings with the parents and opening more days for observation.

We have also been made aware that letters sent home are not being delivered to the parents. Therefore, we have created a private “Letters to Parents” on the school website where parents can log in and view all letters online. The letters can be Google translated into Japanese, which is another advantage. (I know that the translations aren’t perfect, but they are getting better.) Please check this site regularly for school news. I'll always put a notice on Facebook when we post a letter on this site.

Thank you, again, for all your support. We will continue to strive to be the best school that we can be, and to give your child a great school life.

Warmest regards,

Suzy Brown

Principal of New Life International School
