For the past three years BAHS Staff have worked diligently to review the seven core areas that the Association requires a school to show competence in.  This past July, the visiting committee granted BAHS continued status along with 21 notable commendations. By receiving continued accreditation we now move into the two year follow- up phase to address their recommendations for improvement. Detailed information regarding commendations and recommendations can be found in the letter addressed to Ms. Mclean this summer and attached below.
