Welcome to the “new” Patron Insight. A school district’s best friend.

When the reimagining of Patron Insight began in 2019, we arrived at a place that sounded pretty good, in terms of the company/client relationship we hoped for. We wanted to be “a school district’s best friend.”

For us, it’s more than a slogan. It’s our promise to:

Deliver stakeholder research and community engagement, communications consultation, strategic and brand development solutions with integrity. If you don’t need it, we won’t tell you that you do.

Meet expectations for deadlines because your schedule is the only one that counts.

Exceed expectations for product quality and service delivery because everyone likes a “pleasant surprise.”

Budget appropriately, because asking for a fair fee makes sense to everyone.

Provide honest answers, in a constructive way, even if those answers differ from what was hoped for.

Staff appropriately for your needs because nobody likes paying for overhead.

Teach you rather than preach to you, or what we call “sitting on the same side of the table as our client.”

Give back, through very inexpensive – and sometimes free – programs under our Small School District Initiative, because small districts have the same challenges that larger ones do.


Are these the values you might look for in a best friend?
We thought so.

Welcome to Patron Insight “2.0.” 

We’re ready to show you how we can be your school district’s best friend.
