GHV Demographic Survey

The GHV has conducted an annual survey since 2017 of the four member schools of the Urban Education Alliance. The purpose is to understand where the students are coming from in the region which is show in the map and the break down by school regarding zip codes, Ethnicities, and Grades. Also, information is shown regarding scholarships, free tuition, and whether a free lunch program exists and if so, the percentage of usage by students of the free lunch program. Since some of this data changes from year to year, the Demographic Survey is very informative to the Green House Venture regarding the composition of the student make up, the services provided by the different member schools of the Urban Education Alliance, and the formulation of the curriculum for a particular year. Finally, it enhances the partnership relationship of the members of The Urban Education Alliance and the Curriculum Committee of The Green House Venture.
