Survey on the Washington DC Trip 2014

This is your chance to give us feedback on the trip that will help us schedule activities for next year's students. Please rank order your preferred activities and you will have a chance at the end to give us written feedback on anything you would like to comment on.

When you evaluate activities/tours, you are using an A to F grading scale (kind of like school). You can give each activity an independent rating. In other words, you aren't rank ordering the museums and monuments from best to worst, just stating how valuable and interesting it was to you!

Thanks for your feedback!
