Administrators value Upbeat.
Scott Frauenheim, President & CEO
“Upbeat provides our network of schools with an amazing tool to help us identify staff culture gaps, celebrations, and themes across our schools and network. Our organization was founded with a focus on building the strongest school culture and a positive environment for kids and staff. The Upbeat Survey has given our staff the opportunity to provide us with honest feedback in a very structured way, which in turn provides our leadership team the opportunity to collect, analyze, and reflect on this actionable feedback.”
Willie Watson, Assistant Superintendent
San Marcos, TX
San Marcos District
“Of all the tools I’ve used, Upbeat provides by far the most clarity around the satisfaction and engagement not just of our teachers but all of our staff. Their team did an excellent job meeting with each department leader and providing toolkits with clear next steps in areas of concern.”
Jewel Williams, Principal

“Upbeat’s data is extremely useful due to the many filters that can dig deep to your core values within the school to help build the culture of improved leadership and administrative and teacher efficiency. The value of the data extends itself to the coaching sessions which truly opens doors for growth for the instructional leader to be a coach and advocate for their school’s community. Growth is a mindset that must be nurtured, and UpBeat gives the tools to take you and your faculty there.”
