  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) Parent Survey

    As part of our decennial accreditation process with NEASC, we are due to undertake a self-reflection process later this year where we examine our educational program in light of the NEASC Standards for Accreditation. A key step at the start of this process is to administer a survey of parents, faculty and students that will help us to identify areas where we have particular strengths and areas where we need to focus for improvement with regard to the Standards for Accreditation. We will be administering the student and faculty surveys during the school day. Click the Headline for the family (parent/guardian) survey and I urge you to complete this survey. The survey link is also under Announcements. As part of the directions, “If you have more than one student in the school, please think of your oldest student currently attending as you answer the questions in the survey.”
