School Climate Survey

The Ministry of Education mandates that all Ontario district school boards offer an opportunity for staff, students, and parent/guardians to provide feedback on school climate through an anonymous survey. In our continuing effort to facilitate a positive school experience for students, we will be implementing our School Climate online school survey for students in Grades 4 through 8, and Grades 9 through 12. Staff and parent/guardians will also have an opportunity to have their voices heard through similar versions of this survey.  The purpose of the survey is to hear about the whole school climate and what factors make the school climate positive and engaging.

The survey allows students to give feedback about their school experience to their school principal and staff in an anonymous way.  There are no incorrect responses and survey results will not be used to evaluate schools or school staffs.  The results of the surveys are then used to determine next steps with regard to school improvement and board improvement planning.  Highlights of the survey may be shared with community partners.

While the format of the survey, for the most part, is based on multiple choice responses, students will be able to express their thoughts by way of some open-ended questions, as well.  On average, the survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.  The student survey will be completed at school and will be taken in the fall.

As a system we value the voices and feedback from our students, as well as our parents/guardians.   Please take the time to complete the parent/guardian survey using the following link provided at the left hand side of our website .  Contact the school office if you wish to have a paper copy of the parent/guardian survey to complete.

A short (3 minute) video has been prepared to introduce the School Climate survey.  You can view it at .

If you would like more information about the survey, please feel free to call the school.
