The ISHC survey has given us the best grip we have ever had on whats happening in our school in terms of student culture. Your analysis has given “wake up” data to share with parents.

I think the process went smoothly for us, and the information gathered is helpful for us. The information was sent back to us very quickly and both you and Peter were very supportive throughout the process.

The Independent School Health Check was a comprehensive evaluative tool which allowed our students to freely respond to social challenges they face both in and out of school. Surveys were conducted in a manner that allowed for constructive responses by which our school compare and contrast data with peer students and institutions. Responses to the Health Check helped establish our future programming goals and gave opportunities for appropriate discussion among parents, students, and administrators.

The ISHC survey provided our school with valuable information and insight into behavior patterns of our students.  The statistical data enhanced our ability to plan meaningful programs for our students.  In addition, the ISHC National database allowed us to compare our student culture with that of other schools.

The ISHC is a wonderful tool that provides a snapshot of school culture and student behavior.  The data is a wonderful way to start conversations with students in a non-threatening manner as it’s about the collective and not the individual.  It is also a powerful normalizer.

For the last eight years on an every other year basis, The Lawrenceville School conducted its own “home grown” health survey that is very similar to the ISHC survey. The school has always found the data provided by these health surveys very useful in tracking high risk behaviors so we can target our health education…..In the past, we have used national public school data comparison but wanted to have a closer comparison with schools that were more similar to our ours. The ISHC survey has given us this added benefit as well as the benefit of basic data analysis. In order to conduct this type of survey well, it requires a significant school-wide commitment. The ISHC survey staff understand this need and have made the process as easy as possible through their availability and support materials.

The survey provides an excellent way to evaluate your health curriculum, special programs and counseling services.  The comparison with other independent schools gives you a context with which to determine the most pressing issues in your community.

Head of School,

Trinity Preparatory School

We’ve been searching for a survey that contains questions that are broad reaching, but also give us data that we can use, and a comparison group that fits our community.  ISHC is the perfect fit!  Easy administration, lightning fast result, and a process that made the day as easy as you can imagine when surveying 400 students.
