Message from the Principal

March 1, 2021
To the Parents and Families of Abington High School,
I hope this letter finds you well as we approach nicer weather and the promises of a warmer spring. I wanted to take a moment to provide some information on events and updates related to Abington High School for the month of March.
NEASC Decennial Accreditation - The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) will be conducting its decennial accreditation visit for Abington High School. This process occurs every ten years to certify a high school’s program of study, which is important for all of our students as they pursue their options after high school. The committee, made up of public school educators and administrators from New England, will be conducting a virtual visit from Sunday, March 14, to Wednesday, March 17, 2021. This group conducted a preliminary visit called a Collaborative Conference in 2018 to provide us with feedback on changes and improvements the school should make for its upcoming accreditation visit.
Vision of the Graduate - One of the most prominent changes is a Vision of the Graduate, in place of the existing Mission Statement. You will begin to notice the Vision of the Graduate graphic and the accompanying dispositions for students to be critical thinkers, engaged participants, socially competent contributors, and self-aware individuals. The Vision of the Graduate will be the central concept that guides and directs future school improvement planning and decisions. 
Seal of Biliteracy - We are pleased to inform you that Abington High School will be piloting the Massachusetts State Seal of Biliteracy in the 2020-2021 School Year. The State Seal of Biliteracy is for any student who demonstrates proficiency in English and any other language, whether they speak the non-English language at home or learned it at school or in the community. This is an amazing opportunity for any Abington student that would like recognition for their multilingual skills on their transcript and high school diploma. I would encourage any student or parent of a current junior or senior to reach out to me or their guidance counselor if they would like more information. We are currently planning to offer exams in April for any interested student at no cost to the student or family, so we are hoping to compile our list of interested students by Friday, March 19, 2021.
Student Course Selection - Last week, we emailed parents notification that student course selection process beings Monday, March 1, 2021. Students should carefully consider their courses and electives for next year, and, as always, please reach out to their guidance counselor if you have any questions.
Regards, Jonathan Bourn, Principal jonathanbourn@abingtonps.org
