As a final step towards full accreditation through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), last week we welcomed a visitation committee comprised of school leaders from Maine, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Their visit began with a welcoming reception held at Provisions where the school community greeted the committee and informally introduced the school, its mission and programs. During the following days, the committee interviewed, reviewed and evaluated the school and all of its programs. The entire experience was extremely rewarding and informative, and the School has benefited greatly throughout the process. Upon their departure, the children sang songs to bid the committee farewell, and this gesture was deeply appreciated. We are grateful to the visitation committee for volunteering their time and experience to provide L'Ecole Française du Maine with valuable insight. In the coming months, we will receive their feedback and we will keep you posted as to the progress. We offer sincere thanks the entire school community for your help and participation and as we undertook the ambitious self study process. Your input was invaluable. Merci!
