Middle School Survey

Over the years, Open Circle has had many requests to extend our curriculum to middle school. With funding from the Morningstar Family Foundation, we are exploring ways to make this a reality.


We invite you to share your school's or district's needs and capacities for Open Circle in middle school via this brief, five-minute survey. Your feedback will help us to design a pilot, middle school social-emotional learning program that meets the needs of your staff, students, and overall community.

If you would like to be entered in a raffle drawing to receive a $25 Amazon gift card (one random drawing each day from all respondents, November 5-9), please include your full name and email (last survey question)*.

We appreciate your feedback!
