WASC Parent Survey 2021
Dear Parents,
Welcome to the WASC survey, which we are asking you to take on-line. It will be electronically collated and the results will be incorporated into our WASC study. For those of you not familiar with the process of accreditation, our school is certified by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, or WASC for short. WASC is an association that ensures that schools meet various standards in all aspects of running a school.

Some of you may remember our last WASC visit five years ago. It is time again for our WASC evaluation, and we are beginning our self-study process that will produce an important document which will be a comprehensive analysis of everything we do. Please plan to complete this survey in one sitting. It will take about 15 minutes.

All responses will remain confidential. Thank you for taking the time to answer this carefully and honestly. Your comments are important to us.
