NEASC visit to LHS
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) conducted an on-site Decennial Accreditation visit of Longmeadow High School from December 4, 2022, through December 7, 2022. The visit was conducted under the direction of the Commission on Public Schools of NEASC.
The purpose of this visit was to review and determine from an outside professional viewpoint the extent to which the school is aligned with the Standards for Accreditation. As part of the assessment, the visiting team met with all school constituents, reviewed the school’s Self-Reflection, visited a number of classes, and examined examples of student work submitted by the school. The goal of the Decennial visit was to stimulate a continuing drive for improvement in the school. The members of the visiting team were teachers and administrators from a variety of schools in the Massachusetts area.
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges is a voluntary membership organization of more than 2,000 public schools, colleges and universities, independent schools, and vocational, technical, and career institutions. Of these, over 725 schools have been accredited through the Association's Commission on Public Schools. The Commission works with individual public schools to improve the quality of education through a continuous process of Accreditation and evaluation.

Vision of the Graduate Survey
Longmeadow High School has begun to prepare for the 10-year accreditation process of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which will begin now and will culminate in 2022. One of the first steps is to consult with stakeholders in the community to develop a portrait of an LHS graduate through measurable skills and competencies, or what NEASC calls the school’s “Vision of the Graduate.”
According to NEASC, the Vision of the Graduate “emphasizes a holistic view of expectations for students, including the transferable skills, content, understandings, and disposition that students should have by the time they graduate and a method of assessing a student's progress toward that vision.”
The following five to ten minute survey will provide the opportunity to rate the importance of various skills and competencies that are acquired by students in their K-12 education and measured during their high school years. Survey results will be used to create Longmeadow High School’s Vision of the Graduate. The survey runs through Monday, December 17, 2018. Thank you in advance for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. VOG Survey
