For new parents, accreditation is an important reassurance of quality. New parents need to ask which organizations do the accreditation, what form the inspections take, and how often they occur.
ISPS maintains an American accreditation. The school is fully accredited by the AdvancED. This accreditation compels a school to commit to a programme of continuous improvement. The accreditation process works through a ten-year cycle involving three inspections by trained external evaluators and extensive documentation of all school processes, from curriculum to safety to finances, which is externally assessed against Advanced Ed standards
The Primary Years and Middle Years programmes are authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (www.ibo.org). This involves the initial authorization process (similar to the accreditation process) in each programme and regular (five year) reviews.
Additionally, ISPS is registered with the Ministry of Education in Trinidad & Tobago.
