Guam - Several public schools are undergoing accreditation reviews. Throughout the next couple of weeks, representatives from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges will be making their rounds in numerous campuses on island.

Today, a team of three visited Wettengel Elementary School in Dededo. Principal Melissa Limo said, "Right now because we're doing the year to year, we're hoping to at least over the three year. Once the three year happens, then we go into a full self-study. So we're at least hoping for the three year to get us through the accreditation."

Schools also undergoing accreditation include Upi, Finegayan, Simon Sanchez High, Agueda Johnston Middle and Untalan Middle School.
