Accreditation is the confirmation that a school provides a quality of education that the international community has a right to expect and one that the education world endorses. Accreditation is a means of showing confidence in a school’s performance and is therefore seen by St. John’s as a very important aspect and focus for the school.
St. John’s International School is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and by the Council of International Schools.
Accreditation shows that:
- the school is devoted to its mission
- the school knows itself. It has thought deeply about the services it offers to students, family and the community
- the school is student-orientated
- the school keeps its promises. It promises only what it can deliver
- the school accepts objective assessment. It is prepared to open its doors periodically to regular evaluation by the school community and by outside experienced evaluators
- the school is constantly seeking to improve its performance in curricular and other areas
- the school plans for the future.
- As part of the on-going nature of the evaluation process, accredited schools are continually planning future developments
