2024 National School Climate Survey

Take the survey now!


About the survey:

This survey is about school experiences of youth who are LGBTQIA2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, and more) or questioning. The information you share will be used to work toward safe and affirming schools for LGBTQIA2S+ youth like yourself. In this survey, we will ask questions about you, your school, and your experiences in school during the 2023-2024 school year. For example, some questions are about where you feel safe or unsafe at school, what you might look forward to at school, and your participation in extracurriculars.


Who can take the survey?

If you are 13 years or older and identify as LGBTQ+ and/or two spirit and you attended middle or high school in the US last year, this survey is for you. At GLSEN, we know that LGBTQ+ youth of color, trans students, students with disabilities, youth living in rural areas have unique experiences in schools. If you are a student with those experiences and identities, we especially want to hear from you!

If this doesn’t describe you, you can still help us by sharing this survey with others.


Why should I take the survey?

You get to be part of thousands of LGBTQIA2S+ students who are making their voice heard. Sharing your experiences will help GLSEN’s work toward safe and affirming schools for LGBTQIA2S+ youth like yourself. GLSEN has consistently advocated for schools across the country to have teachers and staff that support students like yourself, opposed book bans, and supported school policies that are about your wellbeing and safety in schools.

You can apply to become a part of GLSEN’s National Student Council (NSC) and can become part of a GLSEN Chapter!
