I returned late today from the Peddie School where I was serving as Vice Chair of an accreditation team for the state association. Our team was down at Peddie for four days, meeting with various groups, talking to individuals, and reviewing various documents related to the process. It was informative, helpful and physically exhausting as we worked 18+ hour days to complete the various tasks and compile a thoughtful report.
Though challenging, it was hugely rewarding, both for those of us on the team and the School. The accreditation process is a wonderful way for a school to really understand what it does well and in those areas in which it may improve.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
