Here are the results of this years Athena Culture and Climate Survey. As the results indicate we are continuing to improve the quality of our school as we work together to make Athena High School a great place to learn and work.
In this survey we ask students to rate how they feel about Athena in the following three areas: Enjoyment, Connectedness and Safety.
Notably, the overal percent of students rating each category at a level 8 or higher (out of 10) has increased by 8% from 54% – 62%. Goal #3 in our school improvement plan for this year was to “increase by 10% the number of students responding at an 8 or higher”. Although we missed our goal by 2%, the continued growth in this area is a tremendously positive sign.
Out of all three areas, safety remained the highest rated at 71% reporting a 8 or higher. Unfortunately this represented no change from year to year and is an area that we will continue to work together on moving forward.
Connectedness and enjoyment both saw double digit increases, with both areas jumping by 11% this year. We will continue our efforts in each of these areas moving forward as we look to capitalize on the momentum that has been created in these areas.
The PBIS committee compiled these results and will continue to use this and other data to help guide or efforts moving forward.
