Parent and Student Survey

We want Holly Tree to be the best school in North Carolina! To continue to improve, we need your help!



Starting Friday, January 6, our school will be administering the Measurable Results Assessment (MRA), a survey and reporting system designed to provide insights into the progress of our school. In order to provide a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, the MRA includes three different surveys; 1) one completed by all school staff, 2) one completed by students in grades 4 and above, and 3) one completed by the families of students in all grades. We hope you will participate so we can use the feedback to make our school an even better place for students and families.

Please note: This survey is OPTIONAL for all participants, including families, students, and staff. A link to preview survey questions for all surveys is provided below.
