SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Sleepy Hollow High School has been commended on several key points and expects to renew its accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Superintendent Howard Smith said.

A team of educators recently visited the school as part of the re-accreditation process.

“They left saying they had no reservations about recommending us for accreditation,” Smith said.

The school has been accredited with the Middle States Association for several years, although it is a voluntary program. Officials feel it's an important yardstick in measuring academic rigor, Smith said.

The accreditation standards have become more rigorous through the years, Smith said.

School board members have made the re-accreditatition process one of their goals for this school year.

The visiting team highlighted several noteworthy areas, Smith said, including a dedicated faculty, outstanding educational programs, a commitment to academic rigor and school leadership. The team also identified areas where the school can improve: increasing involvement of all stakeholders in the planning process and using data to inform instruction and program development.
