We are once again excited to announce that IGB International School is now fully accredited with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) through its Commission on International Education (CIE). IGBIS is the only school in Malaysia accredited by NEASC, and joins prestigious universities such as Harvard, Yale and Brown universities.
Accreditation by NEASC/CIE indicates that a school meets high standards of institutional quality through an ongoing, independent, objective process of peer review. The accreditation process provides an opportunity for the school to reflect in depth and critically on its programmes, review its Guiding Statements, and assess its alignment with researched-based Standards of best educational practice. The “Award of Accreditation” recognises the quality of the school, reassures parents, teachers, universities, and governments that the school provides a high quality learning experience, and results in sustained school improvement and a roadmap for transformation (cie.neasc.org, 2018).
This announcement follows on from our recent announcement that the Council of International Schools (CIS) had awarded full international accreditation to IGBIS. These accreditations are wonderful achievements 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 would like to thank everyone who played a role in helping us to achieve these accreditations, from staff (both teachers and administration), the Board, parents, and especially our wonderful students.
