Maple Leaf’s high schools successfully completed the required internal self-assessment work and stakeholder surveys this school year, and have passed their on-site inspections by AdvancEd teams in May and June 2016. All seven Maple Leaf high schools undertaking this process were successful and all were recommended by the on-site inspection teams for full AdvancEd accreditation.
AdvancEd is USA based and is the largest school accrediting body in the world, accrediting more than 32,000 schools involving more than 20 million students in many countries.
Superintendent of Schools: BC Programs, James Beeke, stated “Once granted by its Board, AdvancEd will add USA/international accreditation to the BC, Canada certification that Maple Leaf high schools already hold. In addition to the many complimentary observations noted by the AdvancEd inspection teams, the process focuses on continuous improvement. It identifies strengths as well as areas to strengthen to make a good school even better. These areas will be addressed as priorities in the next two years in Maple Leaf Schools’ goals and professional development plans.”
