Knightsbridge Schools International Panama Earns NCA CASI Accreditation
Wendy McArthur, Director of Knightsbridge Schools International Panama (KSI Panama), happily announced today that KSI Panama has earned accreditation from the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting recently.
NCA CASI provides internationally recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet NCA CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
“Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators. We are proud to announce that some of our 2017 seniors have met the requirements!” stated Director, Wendy McArthur.
NCA CASI accreditation is recognized throughout the world, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures parents that the school is meeting accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, the parent organization of NCA CASI, stated, “NCA CASI Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. Knightsbridge Schools International Panama is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
