Naugatuck High School will be hosting the NEASC accreditation team October 16-19, 2016. NEASC is the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and information on their website states:
Founded in 1885, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has been working to establish and maintain high standards for all levels of education - from pre-kindergarten to the doctoral level - longer than any other accreditation agency in the United States.
NEASC is an independent, voluntary, nonprofit membership organization which connects and serves over 2,000 public and independent schools, technical/career institutions, colleges and universities in New England plus International Schools in more than 65 nations worldwide. A globally recognized standard of excellence, NEASC Accreditation attests to a school's high quality and integrity. NEASC is comprised of four commissions which decide matters of accreditation in the context of research-driven standards reviewed by their membership.
"Accreditation has been a longstanding stimulus for educational improvement," says Cameron C. Staples, President/CEO of NEASC. "NEASC prides itself on its enduring commitment to self-regulation and peer-review. The peer-review process brings educators together and allows for honest, objective and comprehensive evaluations carried out with the utmost integrity and commitment to research-driven standards."
The faculty and staff have worked for the previous two years to complete our self-study which is a critical look at our school against the NEASC seven standards. NHS is excitedly anticipating our review in the fall. It is our chance to showcase our strengths and receive critical feedback to help us grow as an organization in service to students, families, and the community.
