Independent School Health Check

Independent schools want to provide a healthy and safe environment in which all students can thrive. The Independent School Health Check (ISHC) helps schools benchmark the health and well-being of students and identify areas for improvement. 

The ISHC survey is administered to middle and high school students. For many years, the Institute of Living administered this survey. Beginning in the fall 2021, NAIS will be offering the ISHC. 

The survey covers topics such as:
  • Academic achievement, motivation, and pressure
  • Parental oversight and support
  • Extracurricular activities and use of out-of-school time
  • Alcohol and substance use
  • Sleep patterns
  • Sexual activity
  • Fitness and nutrition
  • And many other topics relevant to independent schools
