5 Essentials 
The 5 Essentials survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:
  • Effective Leaders
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environments
  • Ambitious Instruction


Data from the teacher and student surveys will be included in the State School Report Card. We are also asking for QJHS parents and guardians to take the same survey. Although the parent data will not be included on the State Report Card, if 20% of our parents and guardians of students at QJHS complete the online survey, this supplemental report will be sent to our school and district in May of 2015.


This survey is completely anonymous and no information will ever be traced back to you or your child(ren).
