TutaPoint 2013 Back-to-School Student Survey

Teens have always been difficult to read, and with all the distractions of today’s high-tech, always-plugged-in world, it can be even harder to know what goes on inside high-school students’ heads. But TutaPoint is here to shine a light.

We conducted a survey right before school started to find out just what teens are thinking about their education and what’s going on in the classroom. We got the scoop on their tech habits, too.

The results might surprise you.

School’s Out for Summer – Good or Bad?

In the Classroom


The Stressors





 The TutaPoint unit of Apparos Education conducted this survey between Aug. 26 and Aug. 29, 2013. More than 10,000 invitations to participate were sent out to students through email and social media. Sixty-five responses were received from students across the United States, with no specific geographical region represented. More females responded than men. Respondents received no compensations, but all were entered in a random drawing for a gift card.
