It’s July 11, and the very first American School Blog post was made on this date in 2006. In the last 16 years, we’ve tried to post something new every day, and our posts have been a mix of American School news and how current or historical events connect to American School and our accredited middle school courses and accredited high school courses. A lot has changed in the last 16 years, most notably the introduction of an accredited middle school program to complement our accredited high school program and the introduction of online exams for printed courses, online middle school courses and online high school courses, but our commitment to putting students first remains the same and will not change in the future. Thank you to those of you who have read the blog over the years and who are reading today’s blog. Whether today is the first blog you’ve read or you’re a veteran who’s read every single blog for the last 16 years, we appreciate you and are happy to serve you.
