WASC Accreditation


The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is the accrediting body for the western region of the United States. Accreditation is the process for evaluating and assuring the quality of educational institutions and programs. WASC requires that we demonstrate that we are taking real steps to fulfill our mission, are measuring the effectiveness of those steps, and are using the results of those measurements to improve what we do. WASC accreditation is a school improvement process and therefore is a process that serves as the foundation for quality education. An accredited school is a statement to the broader community and the stakeholders that it is trustworthy institution for student learning and committed to ongoing improvement.

It is imperative that we hear from all stakeholders; teachers, students, parents, community members, support, and district staff, as we set improvement goals through this reflective process. To reach that goal, we have attached an electronic parent survey to this newsletter. Please take the time to complete the survey and assist us in setting plans to make HHS the best school possible.
