Monday, March 20 | Your Voice Matters! Complete the NYC School Survey Today!

Good Afternoon HPM Families,


Last week, all scholars received his or her parent/guardian survey letter that included a code assigned to each scholar. This survey is very important to the city and to our school. It is our goal to create the best learning environment for your scholar(s) and family. We value your opinion and want our school to reflect the views of our extended family, you!


Your responses are completely confidential, HPM will not see the name connected to your answers. Our goal is to have 100% parent participation.


Surveys must be completed by March 31, 2017, and it only takes a few minutes to complete online at www.nycschoolsurvey.org



  • Parents who complete the survey will be entered into an HPM raffle for a uniform set that will include an oxford shirt, gray slacks, and black belt.
  • Each advisory with 100% parent completion will receive a dress down day.


To qualify, after you complete the survey, please:

What if I lost my code? Please contact the Main Office at 212-860-1782 and we will help you retrieve it.

Thank you so much for being a part of making our school great!
