Collegiate American School receives NEASC accreditationSeptember 25, 2016, 5:30 pm GMT
Dubai's Collegiate American School, which offers a US curriculum based on American Common Core Standards, has been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The accreditation emphasizes the use of best practices in curriculum, assessment and instruction.
The pre-KG to Grade 11 school is also an IB World school and is accredited by the Council of International Schools.
A NEASC accreditation is now mandatory for all US curriculum schools in Dubai, following the last round of KHDA school inspections, which revealed that American schools in the emirate had registered the slowest improvement in ratings.
While CAS was rated "Good" during the most recent inspection cycle, more than 48,000 students, or 18% of all students currently attending Dubai private schools, are enrolled in US curriculum schools. More than 4,000 students following the US curriculum are in schools that have been rated very weak.
The KHDA partnered with NEASC to offer US curriculum schools synchronised inspection and accreditation visits.
