1990~1999: Transformational Initiatives
In 1990, the popularized name of the school was changed to Caribbean Preparatory School (CPS), an umbrella term signifying one unified school on two campuses, Parkville and Commonwealth.
During the 1990’s, CPS witnessed tremendous changes and growth. New administrative positions were instituted including dean of students, psychologists, educational technology coordinator, school nurse, academic dean, director of development, and director of alumni. Virtually every facet of the school community was reviewed and evaluated, with changes made based on strategic plans and available funds. Beginning with 1997, a new accreditation protocol (Accreditation for Growth or simply AFG) was adopted through the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges (Philadelphia, PA) and has formed the basis of continuous planning and growth, peer review, inclusion of stakeholders, and focus on student outcomes.
Physical facilities at both campuses were renovated and redesigned. For example, from 1997-99 at Parkville, a new cafetorium, library, and classroom complex was constructed along with the development of an ADA compliant elevator and fine arts center.
