All school year long, Mesa’s schools grade the kids, so it’s only right the students and their parents should get to return the favor.

In the most recent “report cards” — otherwise known as Mesa Unified School District’s annual Quality Service Survey — students, parents and employees gave Mesa schools high marks. The results were released last week to the district governing board.

Parents were invited to participate in the survey along with a sampling of students at every school. More than 31,000 parents, 10,000 students, and 3,500 staff members responded.

Among the questions asked of parents, 91 percent said their child’s school “has a positive learning environment,” and they gave the schools an overall grade of 95.

The students were a little tougher: 89 percent gave their school an A plus, A or B.
