Rand International School has taken the accreditation

Many years ago from an international accrediting agency, Cognia whose goal is to help us be successful in making sure all aspects of our school meet the highest international standards of quality.
This non-profit organization has helped our school improve an all aspects with respect to purpose and direction, governance and leadership, teaching and assessing, resources and support systems and using results for continuous improvement.
The Cognia Accreditation Process represents the unified accreditation process for the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) in the USA.
As a school seeking to earn and maintain NCA CASI or SACS CASI accreditation we are following the Cognia Accreditation Process.
Our School is committed to being a quality school in all areas. The Cognia Accreditation Process is providing us with the comprehensive framework for continually improving student learning and school effectiveness.
To take the accreditation for quality in education, this organization sends a team of representatives to check all aspects of the school and decide whether the school is ready to meet its standards or it needs more improvement. Based on this information the team visited Rand international schools in January 5, 2013 and we got the accreditation for quality in education.
