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 other factors that have been shown to drive students' grades, achievement scores, retention and future employment.

Engaged students are


more likely to say they get excellent grades than their actively disengaged peers

Hopeful students are


more likely to say they get excellent grades than their discouraged peers.

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