UPDATE: Culture & Climate Parent / Guardian Survey

NOTE: Given some parents/guardians being unable to access the survey without logging into a Google account, I have updated one of the settings. As a result, if you tried to previously access the survey and had trouble, please try again... your insight is important to us!

Thank you!


The Culture and Climate Committee of Nixon School strives to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard and respected, so that every member of our school community can all feel safe and be successful. To such end, please reserve approximately 10 minutes over the course of the next week to complete the survey below. The perspective that you offer will help us to make sure that Nixon School is the best that it can be. In the coming weeks, a summary of the survey results will be provided via a Nixon School Family Check-In. Thank you for your time. Survey will close on Wednesday, November 24, 2021.


Note: Staff and Grade 3&4 students will complete their surveys the week of November 22.
