WASC Commission Chairperson Harlan Lyso notified our school that the Accrediting Commission for Schools is granting accreditation through June 30, 2019, with a required one-day mid-cycle review! Lyso noted, "This action was taken after a careful study of the visiting committee report, which noted many laudable aspects of the school...Please accept our congratulations on the quality of instruction being offered in your school..." Niu Valley Middle has worked into our Academic/Financial Plan the WASC "critical areas for follow up" Since these areas are consistent with Hawaii's Race to the Top goals, we will be able to proceed using our state's Strive HI Performance System. May I take the time to thank NVMS faculty and staff, WASC Coordinator Ms. Yano, The Class of 2017, and Student Body at large on the monumental accomplishment. A six-year term of accreditation is the maximum given by WASC. Job Well-Done!
