is the affirmation that a school provides a quality of education
that the community has a right to expect and the education
world endorses. Accreditation is a means of showing confidence
in a school's performance. When the Commission on Secondary
Schools accredits a school, it certifies that the school has
met the prescribed qualitative standards of the Middle States
Association within the terms of the school's own stated philosophy
