Good morning MHS families,
There are many exciting and important opportunities coming up in the next couple of weeks, and information about these opportunities is described below.
One area that I would like to speak more about is our NEASC family survey. MHS is currently going through the process of renewing our accreditation through NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges). This year MHS will be conducting and writing a self-reflection report and submitting it to a NEASC committee that will be visiting our school in April. Prior to writing the report we must gather data from students, faculty, and families. We conducted the student and faculty surveys this past week, and we now need to conduct the survey with families. The information provided in all three (3) surveys will be used to determine areas of improvement and support our writing of the self-reflection report.
I am asking all families with a student at MHS to use the link provided and fill out the family survey. This step in the self-reflection process is incredibly valuable and I want to thank you in advance for your time and effort to provide information.
