Your partners in school improvement

Welcome!

The NEASC Commission on Public Schools (NEASC-CPS) accredits K-12 public schools in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. At CPS, we assist public schools through an ongoing cycle of self-reflection, peer review, school improvement, and monitoring to ensure all students experience a high quality education.

Accredited public schools are dynamic learning communities where teachers, administrators, staff, students, and parents are committed to the ongoing pursuit of the highest quality education.
