2010-2011 Survey Results

In December 2010, CAJ invited parents to take an online survey. The survey was completed by 151 parents representing 140 of 317 families.
Note: some parents completed the survey for more than one division of the school.

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 or Agree/Just Right
Somewhat Agree
Somewhat Disagree
Disagree, Too Much/Not Enough or Strongly Disagree
