Youth Truth Overview

  • The Rose Tree Media  School District partnered with the national nonprofit YouthTruth to survey staff, students, and families in March 2023. The surveys gathered feedback and perceptions from each group about a variety of factors that contribute to the cultures of the schools in the RTMSD.  RTMSD principals analyzed and shared the data from last year’s survey with their faculty and staff and created goals and action plans to implement this school year.  The principals followed this same process with the 2023 data.  Below you will find a summary of the goals and action plans and a short overview of this year’s results.  This information was presented to the Board of School Directors on June 8, 2023.  In addition, you will find detailed survey results for the elementary schools, Springton Lake Middle School and Penncrest High School.

    We are grateful to all of our stakeholders who completed this survey.  The information we gather helps us identify our areas for growth and our areas of strength.  We strive to continuously improve to achieve the mission of the Rose Tree Media School District and to cultivate and support an inclusive culture where everyone belongs and each person’s inherent dignity is honored.  

    The survey was administered in March 2023.  A total of 4238 students, staff, and caregivers participated.
