    Your School. Your Child. Your Voice. Take the Survey at: NYCSchoolSurvey.org We thank you for your partnership!

    Every year, we ask all families and teachers and staff in grades 3-K through 12, and students in grades 6-12 to take the survey. The survey gives school leaders a better understanding of what you and other members of your school community think about your school. The information collected by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of your school community about how to make your school a better place to learn.


    How is the Survey information used?

    School leaders use feedback from the survey to reflect and make improvements to schools and programs. Survey results are also used to help measure school quality. To review the results, see the School Quality Guide under the "NYC School Survey Results and Quality Review" tab for a link to each school’s report: View 2021 Survey results in the School Quality Guide(Open external link).
