Amesbury High undergoes accreditation review


Robinson said the schools will hear back from the NEASC within six months, but not likely until at least the fall. Although she is confident that the school will keep its accreditation, she expects there will likely be some areas where the school performed better than others.

“There are always things you can work to achieve excellence, so we look forward to the suggestions they give to us in terms of things we can continue to improve upon,” Robinson said. “It’s not just meeting those standards but also getting a clear direction and path that we can take to continue to improve the offerings in our school.”

In the meantime, school officials are happy with the way the visit went and thought it was worth all the effort.

“It’s a long, arduous process and when I’ve spoken to teachers, they’ve all said it’s worth it,” Robinson said. “They’re looking forward to getting the report back.”
