Taking the Student’s Pulse!

A school climate survey was conducted in March through a survey of students. 287 of our 350 students responded to the survey.  How are we doing?

Below is the table of some of the results from the survey.  The results in the columns represent the percentage of students who agree or strongly agree in one column and the percentage of students who disagree or strongly disagree in the other column.

Here’s an example of how to read the survey.  Take a look at statement #3 “Teachers Respect Students”.  89 % of students agree or strongly agree while 11% of students disagree or strongly disagree.  That means that about 9 out of every 10 students agree and 1 out of every 10 disagree.  While I would like this to be 100%, I believe 9 out of 10 is is a positive result.   Is 78% of the student body stating that they enjoy school and learning with classmates good enough?   That means out of every 10 students, at least 2 students do not feel this.

There are many positive items in this list of student responses.  Which item do you find positive?  There are some items that are not positive.  Which item do you find to be a negative response or a negative reflection of our school?  What can be done?

It is possible to break down these results into grade levels as well.  Which statements would you like to see the results by grade level?

LCS students – this is your school! Which results would you like to see improved and how can we improve the school?  Post a comment….what do YOU THINK?
