District Six Aces Accreditation Review

Spartanburg County School District Six recently completed a rigorous quality assurance review and is proud to announce that the District and all of its schools have earned full accreditation through AdvancED, a global leader in research-based school accreditation. The district received remarkable results, earning the highest rating possible in every area examined by AdvancED. 

The accreditation process involves meeting seven AdvancED standards of quality, engaging in continuous improvement and demonstrating quality assurance. In March, the district hosted a seven-member Quality Assurance Review Team who rigorously examined the district. The group commended Spartanburg County School District Six for strategically implementing initiatives that foster student achievement. 

"It is extremely rare that a district will have highly functional in all categories." - Team Chairman David Pine 

Team chairman David Pine said, “it is extremely rare that a district will have highly functional in all categories.” Out of the four possible ratings of ‘Not Evident, Evident, Operational, and Highly Functional, the team rated District Six “highly functional” in every single standard. Few schools across the country ever achieved  that type of results. 

"This outside accreditation is an amazing accomplishment for District Six. This confirms that we are a strong district, with great people who put children first." - Alex Meadows, District Six Board Chairman

District Six Board Chairman Alex Meadows says, “This outside accreditation is an amazing accomplishment for District Six. This confirms that we are a strong district, with great people who put children first. The accreditation results prove that the hard work and support each of you give are paying off. While there is always room to improve and grow, it is obvious that we continue to be on the right track.”
