NIS is fully committed to external accreditation with the most highly regarded US, European and Asian based organisations. This requires NIS to reflect on practice and to maintain the excellence of our academic programme in line with the highest international standards.
What’s the difference between accreditation and affiliation?
Accreditation requires successful completion of a stringent and demanding standards-based process of evaluation. Whereas, affiliation is simply membership of an organisation. A simple example is that with accreditation our NIS High School Diploma is accepted by all US universities as a compliment to the IB Diploma.
NIS is accredited by the Council of International School (CIS), the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the International Baccalaureate (IB).
