Take Our School Climate Survey
All parents/guardians and students are invited to participate. The purpose of this survey is to gather input about school climate and the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. Responses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in their school improvement efforts.
The survey is short, taking less than 10 minutes to complete. This feedback is highly valuable to us; please take a moment to express your appreciation and/or thoughts for improvement. The survey can be found online at:
There will also be computers available at our school’s parent teacher conferences coming up on February 24th and 25th if you would like to complete the survey at that time. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.
