Healthy Youth Survey

In October 2018, Issaquah School District 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders took the State's Healthy Youth Survey — marking 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 administered the anonymous survey to 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students in October. The survey included questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional 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.

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.
