Learn More About the Poll

Gallup Education has more than 40 years of data and analytics on what makes exceptional school leaders and teachers. Our research has revealed that the best educators cultivate their students' strengths and learn about their hopes and dreams. The Gallup Student Poll helps educators provide a more positive school culture and measures hope for the future, engagement with school, and wellbeing factors that have been shown to drive students' grades, achievement scores, retention, and future employment.

Finish the Poll in Minutes

The online survey measures the engagement, hope, wellbeing, entrepreneurship, and career and financial literacy of students in grades five through 12 (year 13 if New Zealand). The survey also has four demographic items and an optional Faith Index.

The Gallup Student Poll is available to your school for a nominal fee and takes most students less than 10 minutes to complete. Have more questions? See Gallup Student Poll FAQs
