We are thrilled to announce that the Council of International Schools (CIS) has now awarded full international accreditation to IGB International School. This is a wonderful achievement for such a young school and shows the world that we are a school that shares a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens; and that we display a commitment to high quality international education. We join a community that includes 738+ schools and 583 colleges and universities representing 116 countries.
Among other requirements, to gain accreditation, evaluators from CIS spent a week in the school earlier in the year. They interviewed staff, students and parents alike, sat in on classes and investigated how IGBIS operates. The CIS website states that to achieve CIS accreditation, member schools must “…infuse their programmes and offerings with international and intercultural perspective so that students can move forward with the attitudes and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them.”
We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who played a role in helping us to achieve accreditation, from staff (both teachers and administration), the Board, parents, and especially our wonderful students.
