WASC Substantive Change Visit


On April 21, 2017, The American School hosted Dr. Marilyn George, Vice President of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), for a school site visit to assess our new Early Childhood facility.
Dr. George reviewed the curriculum for pre-nursery through Kindergarten, assessed the innovative learning spaces, and met with teachers, students, and staff regarding teaching and learning. She was impressed with the school’s commitment to create a separate, stand-alone facility for our youngest learners. This site visit will culminate in a report of the findings sent to the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges in advance of their June Commission meeting. The Commission will act on the recommendations in the report and inform the TAS Leadership in the fall. The American School is accredited by WASC (pre-K-12) through June, 2021.
