In May 2017 we launched a comprehensive school survey that is carried out and analyzed on a yearly basis by a third-party vendor. Major areas of the school are assessed, including communication, curriculum, teaching faculty, resources, and student happiness. Feedback is collected from students, parents, faculty, and administrators and shared and discussed within the school community. The analysis of the data helps us to identify how we can improve to better serve our school community.

We have been happy to see improvements in overall parent community satisfaction since the first survey in 2017 and continue to strive for excellence and improvement.
