As a school, we strive to be appreciated as an active contributor to our local and global community in order to deliver the best possible teaching and learning opportunities for our students. To assist with these goals, we work with a range of partner organizations who provide a variety of services that support our position as an independent school, enhance our offerings, or complement our community engagement.
ISW is proud to be officially accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WASC is a highly respected school accreditation organization that offers its services to over 5,000 schools around the world. Their rigorous accreditation process ensures that schools provide high quality educational programs, student services, and community connectedness. Our school is excited to have just received a six-year accreditation, which is the highest level of accreditation that WASC awards, as we look towards a bright future of growth in both numbers and programs! For more information about WASC and its thorough accreditation process for international schools, please visit their website.
ACS WASC accreditation assures the educational community, the general public, and other organizations and agencies that an institution has clearly defined objectives appropriate to education; has established conditions under which their achievement can reasonably be expected; appears in fact to be accomplishing them substantially; is so organized, staffed, and supported that it can be expected to continue to do so; and demonstrates that it meets ACS WASC’s criteria and accreditation standards.
