Measuring school climate is an effective strategy recognizing the social, emotional and intellectual attributes of K-12 education. School climate is based on student, parent and school personnel experiences of school life and reflects goals, educational practices, values, and interpersonal relationships.
Iredell-Statesville Schools have been measuring school climate since the 2000-01 school year. This year the survey went through a revision and renewal process culminating in a relevant instrument designed to capture the climate of our schools and district as a whole and to provide feedback on how students, parents, and school personnel perceive their school's climate for learning.
We hope you will take some time to view the survey results and partner with us in working together to create safe, supportive, engaging, and academically challenging schools for the students of Iredell-Statesville Schools.

- 92.2% of parents would recommend their school to their friends.
