Algonquin makes the grade

cartoon 1.10.14 rsNorthborough – School administrators are pleased after Algonquin Regional High School received mainly positive reviews as part of an evaluation done by the New England Association and of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

The process involves an extensive peer review by a team of teachers and administrators from both inside and outside the school district. NEASC then uses that report as part of the accreditation process for the school.

Algonquin received high marks in areas such as overall school culture, staffing and strategic planning.

School administrators agree with the report on several areas that need improvement, such as more time for teachers to discuss curriculum, but note there are financial constraints that must be addressed as well before changes can be implemented.

It is anticipated the school will be reaccredited next year.
