WASC Visit Update
Thank you, St. Albans Family!
Yesterday, our entire staff had the privilege of listening to a glowing final report from our WASC visiting team members. They noted again and again how impressed they were with everyone that they met, from our students to our current and alumni parents, teaching staff, leadership, and executive and SAPA board members.
I would like to both commend and thank each of you. The education provided at St. Albans is only accomplished through partnership with you as a parent. Your dedication helps set our school apart in many ways. I’d like to send a special thank you to every parent who attended the WASC reception or a focus group this week; your honest and authentic responses spoke volumes to our visiting committee members.
Though we will not receive the official commendation until this summer, I wanted to share a little of what we heard from the surveyors yesterday.
Exit Report Highlights
WASC visiting chairperson, Greg Beale, started the report to our staff by sharing that the goal of WASC is to help us to improve. He noted, however, that the team had an extremely difficult time identifying any issues to improve upon. Specifically, he shared that in over 40 WASC visits, he has never seen a school with such high student achievement scores or at which they could find no “Critical Learner Needs.”
He characterized St. Albans teachers as “superstars” and said that the education that students receive here is unmatched by anything he has seen at any other private, charter or public school throughout the Sacramento region and broader California. The other WASC visiting committee members mirrored Greg’s sentiments in each of the areas they covered.
Preliminary Written Report Highlights
In their written report, the WASC team provided us with direct feedback in three key areas, which I have copied verbatim below.
Areas of Strength for Organization for Student Learning (if any) that need to be addressed to ensure quality education for all students:
Areas of Strength for Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (if any) that need to be addressed to ensure quality education for all students
Areas of Strength for Support for Student Personal and Academic Growth (if any) that need to be addressed to ensure quality education for all students:
We have always believed that St. Albans is a special place to learn and grow. We are very proud that the WASC visiting committee saw our school in this same light.
The WASC process of on-going school evaluation and improvement is key to helping us ensure that St. Albans continues to offer students an academic curriculum and enrichment opportunities in a nurturing environment.
Thank you again, for being such an important part of the St. Albans family. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email me.
