Steward Earns High Marks in Seventh Annual Parent Survey
School leadership uses family feedback to continue programmatic enhancements.
Each fall, we ask parents to evaluate their family's experience at Steward. Our guiding question to them is simple: "Why do you choose Steward?" Their responses touch on many aspects of school life and reveal the degree to which our families feel at home in the Spartan community.
This year we were pleased to learn that 100% of first-year families said their experience at Steward met or exceeded their expectations. 95% of families believe Steward delivers on its mission to prepare students for college and for life in a community defined by robust academics, inspiration, engagement, and care. And in a unique addition to this year's survey, 98% of respondents gave the school high marks on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The numbers are telling, as are the written comments we received. One respondent volunteered this:
"Our kids feel safe, challenged, and supported. They will always view Steward as a family. We value the school because it is teaching them to be well rounded and always do their best."
Community feedback plays an important role in our growth and evolution as one of the Richmond-area's top independent schools. Coming off a year in which Style Weekly named Steward a "family favorite" private school, we will continue to draw from our families' insights as a roadmap to better serve our students, parents, employees, and community. Thanks to all who shared your valuable feedback and insights.
