Highlighting that it has strong leadership, an environment of safety, camaraderie, and support for all on the campus, the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges has given Jesse Bethel High School a passing grade.
The commission — the agency that accredits schools from kindergarten through college — took action recently, granting the school a six-year accreditation status through June 30, 2022 after officials toured the campus earlier this year.
“Teachers, school leadership, and district administration deserve a great deal of credit for designing a high school model that meets the needs of an extremely diverse student body,” the visiting team wrote. “Staff has made a number of selfless and difficult decisions in the area of staffing, responsibilities, organization, and accountability in order to meet the needs of students and families.”
