Overall, the responses revealed that our schools are continually improving as they work towards preparing students for college and careers. With our schools building upon the record graduation and college enrollment rates we have seen following our implementation of Equity & Excellence for All initiatives, the survey results indicated that:

  • 84 percent of high school students reported that school staff helped them plan to meet their career goals, up from 78 percent in 2016;
  • 82 percent of high school students reported that school staff members helped them consider which colleges to apply to for admission, up from 75 percent in 2016;
  • 93 percent of parents reported that their child’s school kept them on track for college and careers, up from 92 percent in 2016;
  • 95 percent of high school teachers reported that their school created an atmosphere encouraging students to walk towards a college degree, up from 90 percent in 2016;
  • 95 percent of parents reported satisfaction with their child’s education;
  • 98 percent of pre-k parents were satisfied with how teachers helped their children adjust to pre-k; and
  • 75 percent of parents and 55 percent of teachers were satisfied with Chancellor Carmen Fariña’s leadership, up from 72 percent of parents and 27 percent of teachers in 2013.

When announcing the results of this year’s NYC School Survey, Chancellor Fariña said:

“The School Survey reflects our partnership with parents, students, and staff members, and we have had another record year of participation – including the most parent responses ever. It is also encouraging that more of our students feel supported on their path to college and careers as we’ve instituted the College Access for All initiative, including eliminating the CUNY application fee for low-income students and offering the SAT free of charge during the school day. We deeply value feedback from parents, students and staff members, and we will continue to use it as we work towards equity and excellence in all our schools.”
