Parents, we need your help!! Please use the link provided below to access and complete the 5Essentials Survey. The feedback you provide on the 5Essentials Survey gives us valuable information regarding your child's educational experience at MHS. This information is used to make important decisions about school improvement. Your participation in the 5Essentials survey plays a critical role in the school improvement process. We would greatly appreciate it if you took a few moments to complete the 5Essentials Survey today!

What is the 5Essentials Survey?

The 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that lead to improved outcomes for all students, including improved attendance and larger test score gains.

The five indicators that positively affect school success are:

  1. Effective Leaders
  2. Collaborative Teachers
  3. Involved Families
  4. Supportive Environments
  5. Ambitious Instruction

This survey generates valuable data that districts can use to guide their ongoing efforts to improve schools and to offer students an excellent education. The survey is another improvement tool that allows districts and the state to share data as a means to inform parents and community members about the school’s learning environment.
