Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
Stamford American International School is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges. WASC accreditation is awarded to schools that prove they are worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high quality learning opportunities, and clearly demonstrate that they are dedicated to the critical business of continual self-improvement. The accreditation process is all about fostering excellence in education programs and helping schools meaningfully create the highest quality learning experience they can envision for all students.
The capacity of any organization to improve is directly related to its ability to recognize, acknowledge, and act on its identified strengths and limitations. The accreditation process is a vehicle that enables schools to improve student learning and school performance based on an analysis of those strengths and limitations. Participating schools must meet rigorous, research-based standards that reflect the essential elements of a quality and effective school, and must also be able to demonstrate engagement in, as well as capacity to, provide continuous school improvement.
