Woodcrest School is proud to announce a six year accreditation without an interim visit; this is a designation shared by only the top tier of accredited WASC schools. The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States. The WASC accreditation ensures equity and fairness to all students in all schools. Parents, teachers, staff members, and students participate in a process that enables them to critically self examine their school plan, set their own goals, and assess if their goals are reached for continuous improvement.
