Caribisch Netwerk reports that all eleven students in the last class of the Saba Comprehensive School (SCS) have passed their final examinations (CSEC / CXC / Dutch Cambridge exams).
Also, all three Vocational education (MBO) students have succeeded. The four form 5 PrO students (pupils in special circumstances) have completed their school career and will receive their diploma during the graduation ceremony later this year. The form 4 academic students who have taken this year a number CSEC exams taken were also successful.
This is good news for the school, which repeatedly discredited was the last year. The school had been facing a shortage of teachers and there were problems within the school board. This also led to a protest of some students.
The Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) expects that by 2016 all schools in the BES meet the basic quality of the Netherlands.
