In a survey recently conducted by the Chaparral High School (CHS) Howler, 209 Lobos (approximately 21 percent of the Lobo community) of varying grade levels responded to questions about their motivation for school and how they feel about school. While some of the answers remained similar throughout all of the Lobos surveyed, a few questions presented study- worthy statistics.
One of the main focuses of this survey was on the educational motivators of CHS Lobos. In a section focused on figuring out why Lobos come to school and what pushes them to excel, the surveyed Lobos were asked questions such as, “When did you get your motivation for school?”, and, “What makes you want to attend school?”
Another topic addressed was where students learned their views on their education. This section focused on how students view their education and where they feel their views stem from. This section asked questions such as, “Who taught you your views on education?”, and, “Do you believe that your grades define you”
The final focus of this Howler survey was on student awareness. Lobos were asked questions about their school credits and attendance. These questions included questions such as “Do you know how many credits you need to graduate?”, and, “Do you know if you are at risk of losing credit due to your attendance?”
This Howler survey showed us that while the majority of our CHS Lobos have similar views on their education and similar reasons for getting an education, there are a few things that set each Lobo apart from the others.
