NEASC Decennial Accreditation Report
We are proud to announce that the Commission on Public Schools has reviewed the Decennial Accreditation Report from the recent visit to PMHS and has voted to award the school continued accreditation in the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). PMHS has now continuously maintained accreditation through NEASC since 1955.
The final version of the Decennial Accreditation Report from March of 2023 is enclosed and available on our school website (see the About Us tab). The report was written by a visiting team of external educators following a comprehensive cycle of internal and external assessments and strategic planning.
NEASC requires that member schools demonstrate alignment with the Standards for Accreditation. The visiting team concluded that PMHS aligned with each of the six foundational elements (pages 16-22). PMHS met the standards for Learning Culture (1.1a), which included the completion of a Vision of the Learner, and Student Learning (2.2a), by establishing a written curriculum for all courses in all departments and grade levels. The visiting team and the Commission expressed high praise for our progress in the priority areas for growth (pages 23-28) and our increased alignment with principles of effective practice.
