Chris Nikoloff, head of school, announced in May that The Harker School has received a six-year term of accreditation from the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This is the highest accreditation term and “a vote of confidence that we as an institution can monitor our own growth and chart our own path into the future,” said Nikoloff. Receiving the highest term of accreditation is the result of our community’s hard work and dedication to deliver excellence to students in all areas. Nikoloff noted the accreditation is “an expression of trust from our member associations that we will continue to seek improvement, growth and sustainability around the mission of wholly and healthily educating our children.” Thanks and congratulations to our whole community!
