Parents-Teachers-Students Survey        

 

During this school year, we conducted a survey for parents, students and teachers which is a requirement for our school accreditation by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. (MSA) The survey focuses on 12 standards of accreditation. The result of the survey will be used during the coming school year by the accreditation committees and will be the base for evaluating our current school programs, and develop a strategic plan for improving the school.

I am glad to say that the survey result was positive in almost all standards by parents, students and teachers. We are happy to post the result of the survey on our website so all parents, teachers and students can review it.

Sincerely

Ghassan A. Al Jilani, M. Ed.

Director General
