What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a method of quality assurance designed to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards. The accreditation process improves overall student achievement and organizational eff ectiveness. System accreditation incorporates a performance-based model that has a five year cycle of continuous improvement for all schools.
What does is mean for our students?
Students gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, military programs and colleges that require students to attend an accredited institution. System accreditation recognizes how well all the parts of the education system – the District, school, and classroom – work together to meet the needs of students.
What does it mean for parents?
Parents gain confidence in knowing their child’s school is accredited and that it meets international standards for quality in education.
