Why do parents like Alliance schools?

The Alliance values parents as partners--both for their commitment to their children's education as well as the volunteer hours they perform at our schools. In May, we asked more than 3,000 Alliance families to provide feedback on our performance. We found that parents strongly support the academic program, the college-bound culture and other key aspects of the organization's 11 middle and high schools.

In surveys at each school, parents also responded to the sentence that begins "One thing I like best about my child's school...":

"I am always informed of my child's performance."

"Teachers are 100% dedicated to their students, it is a responsible school and school rules are good."

"The encouragement that students get to prepare for college."

"The uniform, code of ethics and behavior, the principal's awareness of all students and the high standards of the school's overall education."

How could we do better? Parents pointed to better food at nutrition break and lunch, increased access to technology and more extra-curricular activities as areas to improve.
