School Day Wellbeing being Used by Students at SYK

Customer Challenges

Helsingin Suomalainen Yhteiskoulu (SYK) was looking for common denominators in student wellbeing and learning on different levels and grades.  

To understand the current wellbeing and improvement areas, the school started looking for a solution providing real-time analytics to improve school culture and climate.  

School Day Wellbeing was selected as an essential platform to amplify student voice to improve wellbeing with a whole-school approach engaging students, teachers, and parents.

Our Solution

School Day Wellbeing identifies student wellbeing and social-emotional learning areas that require attention and improvement.  

School Day’s unique platform asks students research-based questions, such as:  

  • I am curious about the world
  • I get things done
  • I have a peaceful place for studying

Anonymous responses are turned into wellbeing analytics supporting decision-making and empowering the school community to focus on learning.
