An IB school must be exemplary in terms of educational standards and organization.
The process of accreditation allows the IB to ensure high quality standards are maintained in all IB World Schools at all levels. Such measures ensure that graduates from IB World Schools have access to the best universities in the world.

The accreditation of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is available in three levels:
An IB school must be exemplary in terms of educational standards and organization. Thus, the International Baccalaureate Organization (www.ibo.org) regularly visits our school and analyzes the intensive self-assessment process that we undertake.
The self-assessment is based on criteria relating to a wide range of areas including:
o philosophy of the school
o its teaching programs
o its educational standards
o extracurricular activities
o the level of service and safety
o professional development
o the development of programs
o educational guidance
o and evaluation of student learning
Following visits by the IBO, the accreditation team make a report and recommendations in order to make continual improvements to the school.
