Sanford, FL: Cognia, the global school improvement organization that helps grow learners, teachers, and leaders, has announced Lake Howell High School in its list of Schools of Distinction among Cognia-accredited schools and districts. The Schools of Distinction earn this recognition based on the results of Cognia’s rigorous Accreditation Engagement Review process. 

During the 2021-2022 school year, Cognia conducted approximately 1,500 school engagement reviews for accreditation. This year, 96 schools and 38 systems in 34 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and nine countries are recognized. 

“Congratulations to the 2022 Schools and Systems of Distinction for demonstrating excellence in education in meeting the Cognia Performance Standards,” said Cognia President and CEO Dr. Mark A. Elgart. “Based on the results of their 2021–2022 accreditation reviews, each of these schools and systems demonstrated evidence of growth in learning, a healthy culture for learning, engaging and high-quality instructional environments, and effective leadership for learning.”

Institutions that seek to earn accreditation participate in a rigorous evaluation process that includes a period of self-assessment; an evaluation conducted by trained external, third-party evaluators; and an improvement phase focused on the results of the evaluation. The Cognia Performance Standards for accreditation are based on the latest research and understanding of learning, teaching, and leading expected in effective schools and systems. Once an institution is accredited, it engages in a similar engagement review process at least every six years to maintain accreditation. 

“Being recognized as a Cognia accredited school of distinction is a reflection of the culture we have built at Lake Howell.  Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing excellence in education for each student.  I am proud of all of the ways we work together to prepare our students for a bright future,” said Michael Howard, Lake Howell High School’s Principal.
