Congratulations to the following schools for achieving reaccreditation through the Middle States Sustaining Excellence protocol, which helps high performing schools continue to excel:
- Academy of Allied Health and Science, in Neptune, N.J.
- Parkland High School in Allentown, Pa.
- The Siena School in Silver Spring, Md.
- Thomas More School, Allentown, Pa.
“The hallmark of the best schools around the world is that no matter how well they may be doing, their goal is to outperform their previous best,” said Henry G. Cram, Ed.D., president of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. “I congratulate these schools on their reaccreditation, and for striving each and every day to raise the bar for their students and the entire school community.”
Under the Sustaining Excellence protocol, high achieving schools are required to identify an aspect of their program they would like to improve in order to realize even greater levels of student performance. Schools must develop and implement an action research plan for achieving their goals, and are required to hold a colloquium to share the results with the broader education community with the goal of improving education on a wider scale.
