Education Minister Ronald Thwaites says there has been a smooth start to the academic year for most schools.
Thwaites visited some schools this morning to view activities.
The minister told our news centre that most of the reports he has received were positive.
However, he says some schools have asked for improvement in resources such as new furniture and upgrading of school plants.
The Education Minister says the ministry is responding to the concerns of school administrators.
Thwaites was speaking to our news centre following a visit to the just opened Cedar Grove Academy in Portmore, St Catherine.
Concerns were raised that the new school would not be completed in time for the start of the academic year.
However parents told our news centre that they are pleased with the progress of the construction work and feel comfortable that their children are being adequately catered to.
The school currently only has grade seven students.
The education minister says he expects the school to be completed by the end of October.
He also says a sixth form programme will be introduced at the school.
