The past 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th of April, the visiting team for the accreditation of Shoreless Lake School from Middle State Association was among us.

Taking some words from Dr. Angela Rufo (chairperson of the visiting team): "Thank you again for a wonderful school visit and visit to Spain!  You and your team were so well prepared for the visit that you really did make our job easy and at the same time difficult ."

We came as your “critical friends.” What I mean by this is that we came to look and listen with discerning eyes and ears as professional friends and colleagues. What we have to say to you is offered in the spirit of our desire to leave you in a better position to achieve your goals than before we arrived.

We asked nearly all of the groups with whom we met to identify what they see as the primary strengths of your school. The responses can be summarized by the words “family”,  “community” and the educational opportunity granted to students who might not be able to afford an excellent education. Many schools talk about being a community of learners, but Shoreless Lake  School is a model of such a community.

From the moment we entered the school, we saw and heard that this is a special place. It is a small school, but it is one that is vibrant with activity. We are in awe of the level of student, staff, and community participation in the life of this school. We are impressed by the degree to which your students involve themselves in the total life of the school. What life skills your students are learning as they live together in the residence! We applaud you for the degree of cooperation among the whole staff – teachers, administrators, and volunteers.
