A Progressive School Visit

ISACS_4x6By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

Alexandra and I spent Sunday – Wednesday this week serving on an ISACS visiting accreditation team. As you may know, ISACS sends teams to schools every seven years for a visit; our own is coming up this fall. Prior to the visit year, the school conducts a Constituent Survey (which you may recall having taken last spring) and writes a comprehensive Self-Study, covering all school areas and incorporating the data from the Constituent Survey. It is always a rich experience, being able to immerse ourselves in another school’s culture for several days. This particular school – The Roeper School in Michigan – is, like us, a Progressive Preschool – 12th grade on two campuses. We are finalizing the dates for our own accreditation visit, but it is only months away!

This week the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival visited us to perform Julius Caesar. Tonight into tomorrow is our annual Women’s Retreat. We are grateful to parent Karen Morrison and Gilda’s Club for hosting us for this event.
