Outcomes and Results
Great Hearts served more than 20,000 students from March to June in “remote learning” with high parent satisfaction. From the spring:
- 90% of parents agree or strongly agree that “the work my child(red) have been asked to do is meaningful and substantial”
- 83% of families agree or strongly agree that “overall, our family’s experience of… remote learning has thus far been a positive one”
- Additionally, 91% of Great Hearts Texas families participated in the last voluntary / anonymous survey. We work hard to listen to our families, share results with them, and take action based on their feedback to influence our decision making process
In Summer 2020, Great Hearts led four state-wide parent town halls in AZ and TX, school-specific town halls, and drafted and revised our Distance Learning plans multiple times based on feedback, input, and expertise of parents, home office and campus leaders, faculty, and external experts. During our first town hall on June 29th, we had over 26,000 viewers on Facebook Live. During our second town hall on July 27th, we had over 20,000 viewers. Additionally, all campuses have set up and facilitated their own town halls to strengthen the communication and connection between Great Hearts and the families, students, and communities we serve.
In a September 2020 parent survey to Great Hearts Texas parents regarding the Distance Learning program, we received the following feedback:
- 93% of families agree that “the work is meaningful and substantial”
- 88% of families agree that “the quality of instruction has improved” from the spring’s Remote Learning model, illustrating continual improvement upon an already strong foundation
At Great Hearts we seek to prepare all our scholars for acceptance into their first choice university. Our graduates go on to many of the most prestigious universities both in-state and across the nation. We are especially proud of the fact that over 7 out of 10 of them earn merit-based scholarships. Below is a summary of some of the factors we measure.
