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, its philosophy and goals, its programs and services, its 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 program.
  • Provides an objective, third party evaluation of a school's entire program, 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 program and student transcripts.

ACCREDITATION ENSURES THAT KISC MEETS MSA'S INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS FOR SCHOOLS IN THE AREAS OF:

  • Philosophy, Mission, Beliefs, and Objectives Planning
  • Learning Media Services and Technology Finances
  • Governance and Leadership and Organisational Design of staff
  • Staff and Student Life and Services
