In 1999, Wenzel Elementary School became accredited through the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Imrpovement (NCA CASI). This organization is a non-govermental, voluntary organization that accredits public schools, private schools and districts. To earn accreditation, schools must meet quality standards, implement a school improvement plan to improve student performance, host an external review team, and document school improvement results.
In 2006, NCA CASI joined  the Board of Directors of the Southern Association of Colleges and School Councils on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) and the National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE) to create one organization to serve as leaders in quality education.
