In the next couple of years, our goal is to start the process of accreditation. We are currently looking at the procedures and requirements needed for our school to be self-sufficient in accreditation. However, we are also looking into placing our school under certain authorities for accreditation.
Moreover, our goal as a school is to continually improve in facilities and curriculum. We constantly strive to have our teachers meet the standards and grow beyond it. We are looking into remodeling some of our classrooms to meet the standards needed for education.
