ST. THOMAS ­- John H. Woodson Juníor High School has received word of its official accreditation from the Middle States Commission, making it the first of St. Croix's junior high schools to have achieved accredited status.

Principal Vaughn Hewitt said the school initiated the process of getting accredited six years ago, but problems with the campus, including a mold problem and the overhaul of the ventilation systems, delayed the site visit until this school year.

The Middle States Association is a non-governmental quality assurance agency that assesses middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities.
