At the end of each school year, Chadron High School contracts with LifeTrack Services, Inc. to conduct a confidential, non-biased senior exit survey. We just received the results for the graduating class of 2017. 57 seniors responded to the survey this year. I've included my notes in comparing these results to last year. 
Thank you to all of our seniors for providing this important information which helps provide focus for our efforts for continuous improvement of our school.
