ACCREDITATION

KISC has achieved Middle States Association: Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA, USA) accreditation and is a Cambridge International Examinations (UK) centre.

ACCREDITATION ENCOURAGES AND FACILITATES SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT BECAUSE IT:

  • Requires KISC to establish and implement a yearly improvement plan based on its vision, mission and value statements.

  • Regularly conducts an examination of the entire school – its community, philosophy and goals, programmes and services, facilities and its financial stability.

  • Helps KISC to set priorities for improvement.

  • Offers a mechanism for all stakeholders to play a major role in determining KISC's future, helping KISC to be the best it can be.

ACCREDITATION PROVIDES A MEANS FOR PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY BECAUSE IT:

  • Assures KISC's community that the school's purposes are appropriate and are being accomplished through a viable educational programme.

  • Provides an objective, third party evaluation of a school's entire programme, services, resources and results based on professional standards.

  • Engages KISC in a regular peer review process aimed at ensuring attention to a continuous improvement process.

  • Validates for the public the integrity of KISC's programme and student transcripts.
