Illinois 5Essentials Survey

Students, teachers, and parents across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the ninth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago and will take roughly 10 minutes to complete.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at MCHS and guide improvement. Please know that your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

To take the survey, please visit and select the appropriate survey to begin. Please note that MCHS is listed under "GRUNDY" county.

The 5Essentials Survey is also open to your student(s) who we would greatly appreciate receiving feedback from.
