Student and Teacher Surveys

Our surveys provide school systems, grantors, and grantees with research-validated measures that tell the story of student and teacher experiences.

Guided by Principle

School improvement is complex, but our Theory of Change provides a framework for moving through the process.

  • Student Surveys give us access to students' thinking about their own motivations, their perceptions of safety, and how they view their relationships with adults. When we work to refine those student learning experiences, students are more likely to achieve academic success.
  • Teacher Surveys tell us more about the school culture and how teachers perceive the quality of the supports available to them. When teachers report better experiences, they are more likely to have a positive impact on student outcomes.
