​In this section of the NAIS website, you'll find the following resources:  

Statistical Tables

These national data, sorted by region and by topic, help schools make data-driven decisions. Find Facts at a Glance and National and StateTables.   

Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL)

DASL is an online tool independent schools can use to find actionable data related to all aspects of their school operations, including admission, enrollment, salaries, and more. A collaboration of more than 30 associations, DASL is the independent school community's repository of clean, comprehensive, usable data. In DASL, you can run benchmarking reports to compare your schools' figures to national or regional figures, or to the customized comparison group of schools that you choose.

Demographic Center

Use this tool to run reports (from basic to advanced) to see how demographics are changing in your target areas. Use the results as context for your enrollment projections and your marketing efforts.

Survey Center  

The Survey Center allows you to survey your constituents and conduct evaluations in a convenient, affordable way. The surveys use tested questions developed specifically for independent schools. The surveys include:

  • Parent Satisfaction Survey
  • College-Age Alumni Survey
  • Head of School Assessment Survey
  • Board Self-Assessment Survey

Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM)

AIM is a comprehensive assessment that engages your school community in evaluating your climate. It delivers tangible results your school can use to strategically plan for building and sustaining inclusive independent school communities.
