ACS WASC accreditation is a process schools use to monitor student learning and set school improvement goals. Every six years, MSTMA is required to renew its accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). A self-study process is required for this accreditation. This process helps us write an action plan for the kinds of changes that will help our school continue to thrive, and remain one of the best comprehensive high schools in California. Our goal is to take this process, one that can seem bureaucratic and burdensome, and make it a positive experience that helps us move MSTMA forward.
