All Things New
Elementary School (K-8) Survey Results
As part of All Things New, the Archdiocese of St. Louis is examining our parishes, schools, ministries and agencies, evaluating our effectiveness in proclaiming the Gospel. Our goal is to ‘make all things new’ by Gospel renewal and to enhance our evangelization to secure a vibrant future for our current students, as well as their children and grandchildren, by creating an educational model that is accessible, affordable, strong in Catholic identity, and more equitable towards our teachers.
As part of this prayerful discernment, Archbishop Rozanski recently sought additional input and feedback from current parish school teachers, staff and school families about their Catholic school experiences. Nearly 1,900 teachers responded to their survey and more 10,000 parents and guardians responded to their survey by answering both multiple choice and open ended questions.
Below is an overview of all the responses from across the Archdiocese of St. Louis and well as the parent responses to their specific parish school. Each pastor and principal has received the results for their specific school, and parts have or will be shared with teachers, staff and school parents. They have provided excellent and important feedback to the Archbishop regarding the values and desires of our employees and parents as they relate to the future of Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
