Thank you so much for participating in our Parent Survey. Approximately 70% of families took the time to provide us with input. The results were overwhelmingly positive and encouraging. Here is what you had to say about whether ICSV is meeting the goals of its mission statement:
- 93% agree or completely agree that ICSV provides a high-quality education!
- 91% agree or completely agree that ICSV provides individualized education!
- 94% agree or completely agree that ICSV is building Christian character in our students!
- If we add in those who somewhat agree with these three statements, then 100% believe that we are meeting or are on our way to meeting these goals!
The one area of the mission statement where we scored slightly lower is that 83% agree or completely agree that ICSV’s students and alumni impact the nations of the world. This result may mean that we need to improve in this area or that we need to make an effort to find out more of what our students and alumni are doing so that our school community is aware of how ICSV is making an impact. Either way, this may be an area that we choose to focus on in the future.
Two other areas where we scored slightly lower were in our use of field trips and in the number of athletic options that we offer at the secondary level. Last week I told you about how we are going to add class trips for all secondary students at the beginning of the year. This spring, a student initiative brought about the addition of a track team to our sports line-up.
Another suggestion was to format the Eagle for our cell phone users. We have already made this change, as well, so hopefully you can notice this slight difference in the way that you see the content here. You will find the calendar, lunch menu, etc. that used to be in the left column at the bottom of the Eagle now.
The comments were also very encouraging. One parent stated: “ICSV has opened the horizon for my four children. It gives them the chance to experience many different cultures, children from very different backgrounds, and a high quality education in a Christian environment. We are very thankful to have ICSV in Vienna!”
