5 Essentials Survey

In an effort to improve our school, MHS is participating in the 12th annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey, a questionnaire generated and distributed by the University of Chicago and supported by the Illinois State Board of Education. The survey window opened on January 30, 2024, with parents, students, and teachers across Illinois having the opportunity to participate.

The survey is taken online, and most tools and browsers can be used, including smartphones. In order to receive a report of parental feedback, MHS must have at least 20% of parents respond to the survey. We ask for your input and value your opinion.

Please follow this link to the survey:
