School Quality Reviews

Please note:  CMS no longer has a School Quality Review program.  This page is for historical purposes only. 

The School Quality Review program was designed to develop a clear picture of the quality of education provided in a school.  It assisted the school in establishing a clear view of its strengths, areas for development, challenges and successes.

The two-day review was led by a team of three highly experienced and trained educators.  Each school received a qualitative investigation of six criteria:

  • Achievement
  • Learning and Teaching
  • Curriculum
  • Leadership and Management
  • Learning Environment
  • Involvement of Parents and the Community 

Each criterion was reviewed using a detailed rubric and a triangulation of perspectives: data analysis, observation,  and questioning.  The review included ten classroom observations and four questioning sessions with select groups of students, teachers, administrators and parents.  Reviewers also observed a collaborative meeting of teachers and held several meetings with the principal.

The review required the school to prepare a Self Evaluation Form two weeks beforehand.  This effort revealed the school's perception of itself and fostered a reflective discussion among the staff. A detailed final report followed the review which included a list of recommendations.  Additional information was included in the documents below.
