Do you want to understand how activity and trends in your school fit into a larger context? Benchmarking reports enable you to look at your own data as it relates to the larger North American day school field. Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL), the NAIS data and analysis tool, has powerful metrics that help you understand how your school performs in relation to other Jewish day schools across North America, as well as other independent schools in your region if you are a member of your local independent school association. Learn how to create custom benchmarking groups and download benchmarking data such as:

  • Average attrition rate
  • Average tuition and fees
  • Total amount given towards annual campaign
  • Average total amount spent on administrator salaries
  • Average teacher salaries
