Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors

In December of 2011, students in grades 8, 10, and 12 in the four secondary schools of the Lower Merion Township, along with four independent schools of the township (Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy, Friends’ Central School, The Haverford School, and The Shipley School), took part in an important study on the needs, attitudes and behaviors.  The survey, entitled Search Institute Profiles of Student Life:  Attitudes and Behaviors, provided our schools and community with a wide range of information, such as how students spend their time, their perceptions of school and community life, and their participation in a wide range of risky behaviors.  Most important, the survey told us the extent to which our students are experiencing Developmental Assets.  Developmental Assets are the “building blocks” of positive relationships, opportunities, skills and values that young people need in order to grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults.  The results of the survey have provided the Coalition with an understanding of what life is like for young people in Lower Merion Township and the Borough of Narberth and to engage the entire community in creating a safer, healthier place for youth and their families.
