Tamuning Elementary Gets 3 Year Accreditation


Guam – Tamuning Elementary School is the latest Guam Department of Education school to receive a positive nod of accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

WASC officials contacted Principal Kathy Reyes recently to inform her that they had extended Tamuning Elementary’s accreditation by three more years, through June 2015.

Tamuning Elementary underwent a mid-term review by visiting WASC members last April.

New Guam Department of Education Superintendent Jon Fernandez welcomed the news. He applauded Principal Reyes and the entire school community of Tamuning Elementary.

“We are proud of all the work and dedication Tamuning Elementary students, parents, staff, faculty and administrators have put into upholding the school’s standards of teaching and learning,” Mr. Fernandez said.

“It takes a team effort and obviously the work never ends,” Mr. Fernandez added. “However, if we stay focused on giving the best for our children, it is work that is extremely satisfying. Congratulations Tamuning Elementary!”

Tamuning is the fifth DOE school to receive accreditation this summer. WAC awarded initial three-year accreditation to Pedro C. Lujan Elementary School last week. George Washington High School earned a full six-year term of accreditation, Okkodo High School won three-year accreditation during its very first full visit by WASC, and Daniel L. Perez earned an extended term of accreditation for three additional years.
