WASC Accreditation

Elementary School Accreditation:
In 2012, the Hawaii State Board of Education approved the Hawaii Department of Education’s five-year plan to accredit all public elementary schools that have not previously been accredited.  
 
IPES became a WASC accredited school in April 2017 after a rigorous process of self-study, self-reflection, with a primary focus on how to increase and support student achievement.  We took an in-depth look at what we currently had in place to see what was working well and what needed improvement.  Iroquois was granted a six-year accreditation status, with one mid-cycle visit. 
 
In December 2020, our mid-cycle visit was conducted and the WASC Visiting Committee was especially pleased to see our progress and commitment to our students by creating a well-balanced curriculum, and our teachers diligence in managing the state and complex initiatives. 
 
A big mahalo to teachers, parents, students, and community members who were actively involved in our school's WASC self-study.
