Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Accreditation

In the fall of 2009 La Habra High School completed the process of renewing its Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation. During 2008-2009 its staff members, parents and students had meetings to complete the Focus on Learning report that the WASC Visiting Committee reviewed to determine its accreditation. The final step in this process took place October 25-28, 2009, when the Visiting Committee spent time on campus and in the classrooms to confirm the report. The Visiting Committee is comprised of administrators and teachers from other school districts throughout California. La Habra High School was granted a 6-year accreditation with a three year review that expires in 2016.
