Middle States Accreditation
St. Margaret's School is currently on "The Path to Excellence" by seeking accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
"Middle States accreditation remains a prestigious validation of educational excellence and dynamic school improvement in traditional and nontraditional schools worldwide."
Accreditation is an impartial, third-party validation that an educational institution meets challenging, but achievable standards of quality, and provides a mechanism for continuous school improvement. It is a dynamic process which requires the commitment and involvement of a wide range of stakeholders. It engages the community and ultimately assures the public of an organization's integrity.
The process of accreditation takes into account factors such as:
- quality and continuity of the school's leadership and governance
- condition of school facilities
- finances and fiscal stability
- effectiveness of student services
- health and safety
- staffing and
- long-term planning
All of these factors directly contribute to student performance.
St. Margaret's School is proud to be seeking Middle States Accreditation! If you would like to participate in the process or have any questions about the process, please contact Mrs. Hopkins by calling the school office at 315-455-5791.
