BIS Houston is delighted to announce we have been awarded NEASC accreditation. A globally recognized standard of excellence, NEASC Accreditation attests to a school's high quality and integrity. It also serves to assess the systems in place for ongoing institutional self-reflection and a school's commitment to and capacity for continuous growth and/or transformation.
Following a rigorous three year accreditation journey BIS Houston are proud to announce NEASC Accreditation.
Read just a few of the outstanding highlights from the NEASC visiting team report:
What a school! What a community! It is easy to be overwhelmed by the strong sense of collegiality and commitment to the students, along with the physical plant, the well-resourced classrooms, and the equipment that supports student learning.
"It is evident that the academic and co-curricular offerings at BIS Houston provide an abundance of learning opportunities that encompass creative, moral, social, experimential and developing enterpreneurial dimentions."
"The atmosphere at BIS Houston is one of collegiality, mutual respect and support among the members of the community."
"The school recognises the diversity among students and enable all students access to learning."
"The family-orientated culture of BIS Houston is so persvasive that many acts of kindness are simply organic."
"Reflection has long been a part of BIS Houston's identity."
This is a tremendous accomplishment and we could not be more proud!
Congratulations BIS Houston!
What happens next? Accreditation is not a single event, but rather an ongoing, voluntary cycle of comprehensive internal and external assessments, short- and long-term strategic planning, and periodic reporting sustained by professional partnership and support. As a NEASC member school, BIS Houston must, according to the appropriate Commission protocol, periodically demonstrate continued alignment with NEASC Standards in order to maintain NEASC Accreditation/Membership.
