AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems with the goal of helping schools improve and ensuring that all learners realize their full potential. AdvancED partners with over 34,000 schools and school systems across the United States and 70 other countries.
While our proprietary Primrose Balanced Learning Curriculum is accredited corporately via AdvancED, Primrose Schools was the first and still one of the few schools that requires each individual franchise school to also seek accreditation through AdvancED, with a re-accreditation required every five years.
As part of the process, AdvancED team members visit the school, review a multitude of documents/evidence that prove / disprove the school is meeting over 250 sub points across five different standards, speak with teachers, observe classrooms and teacher-student interactions, and interview parents and teachers.
Our commitment is always to constantly hone, evaluate and improve our educational product and services, making decisions influenced by the key consideration of "what is best for the students." And while there are many items we hope to tweak, test, review and potentially implement over the next five years, we were both pleased and humbled to hear the lead AdvancED evaluator share that our school score tied the highest she has ever awarded a school. We would like to extend a thank you to all that participated in this recent (and ongoing) endeavor, and our teachers, leadership team and support staff who are committed to delivering at a high level each and every day!
