The overall Division results represent 3,713 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. This was an increase in responses from 2,918 in the previous year.
The survey results for F.R. Haythorne Jr. High have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
- Numeracy skill development.
- Understandings of First nations, Metis and Inuit history and culture.
- Staff care about students in our school.
Opportunities for growth:
- Literacy skill development.
- Teaching knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for students to be successful in life.

The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2018-22 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
