It's less about boasting about high pass rates and more about

Not getting in trouble for poor pass rates. I guarantee that most folks will shrug their shoulders at a high pass rate (who cares how kids did on a single test) but will be very upset if the school has a poor pass rate.
Being labeled a failing school is much more impactful than "fully accredited".
I've taught in both and the crap you have to deal with as a teacher (and administrator) when your school (or county) fails is another level of hell.
People say they don't care about a single test.....but all hell breaks lose if a school doesn't pass. "How dare teachers spend all this time on a stupid test." becomes "Why aren't those teachers teaching those kids?"
