Stockholm International School has been accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) for many years now. CIS have their standards and practices for how an International school should operate. It is a demanding standard for every aspect of a school. We have 5 staff members that have had the CIS training to be a member of a visiting team to help with accreditation and support.
Currently I am in Astana, Kazakhstan visiting an International School looking to be accredited by CIS. It is a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and follow another school through their process. Education in Kazakhstan has challenges that are very different than the challenges we experience in Sweden at SIS, however at the heart of the school, we are similiar. I look forward to keeping in touch with some of the friends I have made here and following their process of school improvement.
