This quick survey is meant to help us understand your experience as a student at a New England independent school. And while we ask for your contact information, we promise that your feedback will remain completely anonymous. 

 

So how are we going to use the information you share? While we will never use individual or school names, we will share a compilation of anecdotal stories and aggregate data with accreditors. Aggregate data may also be shared on our website. Written, detailed, and personal examples are one of the most powerful tools to help get our point across and inspire change. If you have any questions or specific directions regarding how we handle your feedback, please leave a note in the comments.
