What You Had to Say

Our board embarked on a comprehensive School Quality Assurance Program in September of this year, and the committee assigned to the work is nearly finished with its report. As we put the finishing touches on it, I thought I would share with you a few lines from the extensive survey that parents were asked to fill out in September. The results have been very informative and encouraging, and they are providing much of the background to the final report. Among many other things, we asked…

“The Christian character of the school is evident in the school’s instruction and programs.”
– 96% of parents agree or strongly agree

“The academic quality of the school program is good.”
– 90% of parents agree or strongly agree

“Faculty and staff model Christian maturity in speech, attitude, and conduct.”
– 98% of parents agree or strongly agree

“Faculty and staff function as a team of Christian workers.”
– 98% of parents agree or strongly agree

“Teachers believe that all students can learn and be successful.”
– 98% of parents agree or strongly agree

“There is a positive atmosphere among the students in the classroom.”
– 91% of parents agree or strongly agree

“The school provides a caring environment for all students.”
– 96% of parents agree or strongly agree

“I believe that students are safe at this school.”
– 100% of parents agree or strongly agree

The survey was overwhelmingly positive, but there was also some near-consensus that some things should be addressed. By far the loudest voice on this front had to do with the facility and the need to be looking for something more suited to the school’s larger enrolment. You also had great suggestions about other things, such as the need for more special education & resource support, and these will be brought up in our final report.
