Francis Parker School is fully accredited by the CAIS (California Association of Independent Schools)/WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).
In 2005, the Francis Parker School community conducted a comprehensive self-study for the purposes of CAIS/WASC accreditation. The report looks into every aspect of our school in an effort to assess the impact on student learning and the effectiveness in fulfilling our intended objectives and mission.
A CAIS/WASC Visiting Committee visited our campus in March of 2007, and during their four-day visit, the committee met with faculty, staff, students, parents and volunteers. In the end, the committee completed their Final Report along with commendations and recommendations for the entire school community.
We are delighted to report that, soon after, Francis Parker School was granted a full term of accreditation through until June 2013.
