CHOOSING a school that ticks all the right boxes is essential for a child’s academic journey. While classroom experience and school management are important things to consider, accreditation can also help when deciding a school. Accreditation separates a great school from a sea of good ones.
Investing in a child’s private education is expensive and financially responsible parents need to look at all aspects of the school.
When it comes to delivering quality education, accreditation matters as it assures parents that the school follows certain standards. Parents can be confident about the quality of management and learning experience in the school.
Accreditation equals quality: Sets benchmark for quality education:
Accreditation comes in all forms, including varying levels of quality education.
For instance, the Council of International Schools (CIS) is an established accreditor committed to assuring high-quality international education in schools. Nexus is no stranger to the CIS accreditation and chose CIS because it is a well-respected accrediting body.
CIS looks at all aspects of the school such as management, structure, policy, curriculum, health and safety.
It is a comprehensive set of standards that schools have to meet and gives validity to the work good schools do.
Improves classroom experience for the child:
Experience is one of many advantages of school accreditation and that means keeping abreast of educational research on best practices. This applies to the accreditation by the Apple Distinguished School.
Nexus embedded technology within its curriculum and over time, developed a sophisticated use.
It continually invests in developing the teachers’ understanding of how technology can transform learning, which is cutting-edge and ahead of the curve.
Better teaching experience:
Accreditation also reflects on the way teachers develop the learning experience.
Being accredited with International Primary Curriculum (IPC) helps Nexus to emphasise learning as the central focus of the school.
Nexus invests in its teacher and professional development. Teachers are engaged in the continual reflection of their pedagogical practice and that means that all that Nexus does is perform in a thoughtful way.
Creates a well-rounded learning experience:
Accreditation also allows the school to assess the learning experience in a 360° perspective.
It amplifies the need for schools to provide a well-rounded education and produce an innovative method of teaching.
There is a push around individual student progress and personalised learning in Nexus and this goes across its IPC, International Baccalaureate (IB) and CIS programmes.
School accreditation provides various benchmarks the quality of education that a school supports. When a school meets quality education standards and provides a valuable classroom experience, the one that benefits the most from the accreditation is the child’s education.
