2013 Third-Party Evaluation

More than 1,000 educators from 48 states responded to our 2013 online survey. Below are some of the results, along with a small sample of the overwhelmingly positive comments.

94% indicate program affects the school climate in a positive way.

Project Wisdom makes all the difference in the world to establishing a positive climate at your school. I have been using it for 7 years.

– Frank, Principal (CA)

I have brought this program to all four schools where I have worked. It is a great way to start off the day.

– C., Principal (NY)

80% indicate program helps decrease teasing and/or bullying.

Bullying is down. The students seem to be more accepting of one another’s unique traits. They do not seem to be teasing and picking on one another as much. I am not having as much gossipy conversation.

– Jill, Teacher (TN)

71% indicate program helps decrease discipline referrals.

It has helped decrease our out-of-school suspensions.

– Betsaida, Assistant Principal (PA)

89% indicate program has positive impact on teacher morale.

Teachers are constantly telling me how much they enjoy the messages.

– Bonnie, Counselor (TX)

86% indicate daily messages stimulate student conversation about character issues.

The messages open topics of conversations at each grade level for teachers to explore, and when I see students in my office, I use the same vocabulary.

– Denise, Principal (CA)

86% indicate program increases students’ self-awareness
88% social awareness
85% self-management
86% relationship skills
86% responsible decision making

Project Wisdom speaks to students on a level they can understand about concepts that are difficult for even adults to embrace. Overall, by helping children develop a sense of empathy and compassion for others, they are able to learn the value in being a part of a community.

– Christy, Assistant Principal (MS)

We have experienced a rise in kindness lately!

– Susan, Principal (CA)
