Healthy Youth Survey

In October 2018, Issaquah School District 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders will take the State's Healthy Youth Survey — the eighth time Issaquah School District has been involved in the state-wide data collection effort.

The biennial Healthy Youth Survey is sponsored by the following state agencies: Department of Social and Health Services, Department of Health, Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Liquor and Cannabis Board.

Many Washington school districts like Issaquah voluntarily administer the anonymous survey to 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students in October. The survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intention injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse, and orientation. Results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risk.

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

The Healthy Youth Survey is voluntary. If you do not want your student to participate in the survey, you can excuse your student from participating by calling the school office in advance of the day of the survey at your student's school to assure that we can communicate your wishes appropriately. In addition, students taking the survey can skip questions and stop taking the survey at any time. Students can also excuse themselves by telling their teacher that they do not want to take the survey. Students not taking the survey will participate in a different activity, such as studying or reading in the library. There is no penalty for not taking part in the survey. Your student’s grades will not be affected. If you would like to view a copy of the survey the office of each school with have a copy available for preview.

Data Charts

Data charts contain graphs comparing district and individual middle and high school student responses to responses from students in schools across the state of Washington

NOTE  Beaver Lake data charts are not available as students did not receive test booklets.

Raw data

Raw data includes responses for all questions and indicates the margin of error or confidence level for each response.


  There was not enough participation among District 8th graders to be considered valid enough for a raw data report for the District. 60% participation is considered enough to validate the data. Because Beaver Lake Middle School did not receive its survey booklets, students there were unable to complete the survey, which resulted in fewer than 60% of District 8th graders participating in the 2004 Healthy Youth Survey.
