for Public High Schools

The Standards act as the foundation for the cycle of accreditation: the school's self-reflection, the on-site visits by peer review teams, and the school's planning and follow-up process. They guide the school and its community toward a clear and comprehensive school improvement/growth model by which they can assess themselves; gain valuable, objective feedback from other educators; and implement a realistic and relevant planning process to improve education for their students.
