The AIAASC Accreditation Standards monitor the mission and vision of the school, how the school selects curriculum, the certifications and qualifications of the staff, the operating procedures, the financial strength of the school, the school improvement plan that has been developed, and other such key elements that demonstrate the accredited school is a quality, well-functioning school and follows the best proven practices of the finest schools.
The AIAASC Accreditation Standards were developed specifically for international schools and indicate high-quality educational practices. These standards and indicators should be used by the school to self-assess their practices and programs to ensure that they are providing a high-quality and rigorous education for all students. A full accreditation visit is conducted by highly-qualified trained volunteers who use these standards and indicators in addition to the school’s self-assessment to evaluate, provide feedback for, and verify the school’s improvement plan. Schools that continually engage in self-assessment and set goals based on these standards and indicators will ensure that they are providing a high quality educational program for all students.
