Robin, Lawrenceville

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.
