WESTERN ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOLS AND COLLEGE (WASC)
Every college and high school in California goes through an accreditation process. The Calaveras Hills High School staff and school community engaged in a year-long Western Association of Schools and Colleges self-study, examining curriculum, student academic performance, leadership, assessment techniques and school culture.
Findings were presented to a four-member visiting committee. The committee reviewed the self-study and spent four days on the Calaveras Hills High School campus, observing classes, meeting students, teachers, administration and parents.
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges gave Cal Hills its highest honor, a clear six-year accreditation.
Calaveras Hills High School is a California Model Continuation High School. There are 521 continuation high schools in the state, serving 68,000 students. Only twenty-five were recognized as “Model Continuation High Schools.”
During the three years (2012-2015) Calaveras Hills is designated as a Model Continuation High School, the California Department of Education will share information about the Model School Program to other schools and districts and identify Cal Hills as an exemplary model for others in the state of California.
