Synchronized Accreditation NEASC/CIS

The majority of NEASC accredited international schools participate in a synchronized, joint evaluation process facilitated by a collaboration between NEASC and the Council of International Schools (CIS) in Leiden, Netherlands. Working with a set of standards and procedures that have been endorsed by both NEASC and CIS, the school produces one Self-Study and hosts a single Team Visit. The Chair and Co-Chair, representing the two associations, convey the recommendations of the Visiting Team to their respective organizations. Each association then makes its own decision with regard to the terms of Accreditation for the evaluated school.
