Healthy Youth Survey for 6th & 8th graders

Washington State Healthy Youth Survey 2021


Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey this Fall. WMS will take the survey on October 20th 6th and 8th grade science classes.


The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, home life, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. Sample surveys are available in the WMS office for preview. Both students and families may opt the student out of the survey.


Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. 


Schools will be administering the survey online this year. No privacy issues were identified in the E-survey pilot conducted in 2019. This year, schools and districts are being instructed to disable any recording, keystroke tracking, and video capture software on school-issued devices used to take the survey.


Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter (English version) (Spanish version) for more information and opting out of the survey about the Healthy Youth Survey. Other languages are available by contacting the WMS office.
