The results are now available for the 2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 20 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan:

The overall Division results represent 2,918 responses from parents and guardians across EIPS. This was an increase in responses from 2,678 in the previous year.
The survey results for Wes Hosford School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:

- Quality of Teaching
- Reinforcing the Responsibilities of Citizenship
- My Child's School is Safe
Opportunities for growth:
