2015-2016 Parent Survey Results

In February 2016, CAJ invited parents to take an online survey. The survey was completed by 104 parents representing 102 of 333 families.

Surveys will be conducted annually and the results compared across time and with results from other schools. Surveys are an important part of our school improvement process, but are only meant to be one form of feedback. CAJ welcomes your feedback, and we continue to encourage direct communication with our teaching staff, support staff, and administration.

The results (below) are tabulated in terms of the rounded percentage of people rating an item as:
Strongly Agree
Agree
Somewhat Agree
Somewhat Disagree
Disagree
Strongly Disagree
Don't Know/Doesn't Apply
