WHAT DOES BEING AN ACCREDITED SCHOOL MEAN?
Accreditation is a guarantee that the school has met the exacting requirements of a particular accreditation agency - COBIS, CIS, and MSA. These standards are thoroughly checked by a team of educational professionals, be they Inspectors in the case of COBIS, or Peer Visitors in the case of CIS and MSA. Accreditation is renewed every five years and The BIS is currently undergoing the self-study process prior to the renewal of our CIS and MSA Accreditation. In meeting these standards, we are showing that we are a school that is top quality in every area of its operation. We are showing that we are a school that can be relied upon to give children a top-quality education at all levels of the school. We are showing that we are a school that cares for its staff and is a great place to work. We are showing that we are a school that cares about our principles, and that has Guiding Statements that we live up to because they guide every decision made in the school. We are a school that understands the requirements of international and intercultural education and provides this to give high-quality education to every one of our students.
