The High School Explorer provides functionality that allows you to find high schools based on a variety of data points. Using the available filters, this report will help answer questions about such as:
- Which high schools have the most minority, female, engineering students?
- In my primary states, what high schools have the most students interested in Nursing?
- For students in my secondary markets, at which high schools do I have the most interest from first generation students?
The geographic filters shown allow you to focus on specific States, Geomarkets, Counties, or Zip Codes. When editing any filters, you will be prompted to Show Results which will apply the selected filters and update the high school grid based on your selection.
In addition, selecting the Add Filter option will provide access to 18 additional filters to more precisely identify the data being researched. This also includes an option to search for specific schools based on their name or school type.
The High School Explorer report includes a grid displaying a list of high schools based on the filters selected. By default, the grid displays the most recent year and will sort based on Institution Visibility. Clicking on the school name or the Detail button will launch the High School Detail report for the school selected. The grid displays each of the data points below, which can be sorted in any direction:
Name - The name of the High School selected.
City/State - The city and state where high school can be found.
HS Code - The ACT Code for the high school.
Type - The type of institution (4-year, 2-year) for the competitor.
Prospects - The number of known students from the school.
Visibility - The number of students at this school who have expressed interest in your institution.
Enrolled - The number of students that enrolled at your institution from this school.
