We are thrilled to announce that Verita, an accredited IBDP and COBIS school, has achieved another momentous milestone by receiving full accreditation from the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS).
This esteemed accreditation is a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence in education, global learning, and the overall well-being of our students. The thorough evaluation process included an in-depth review of our mission statement, values, principles, curriculum, and commitment to student development and enrichment.
This accreditation not only strengthens Verita’s position as a leading international school but also reaffirms our commitment to nurturing future leaders who will make a positive impact on the world. From our youngest students (starting at the ages of 2.8) to our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme graduates, this recognition highlights the quality of education and the learning experiences we provide.
As we celebrate these remarkable achievements, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Council of International Schools for their thorough assessment and recognition of our efforts. We are incredibly proud of these accomplishments and look forward to continuing our journey of excellence in education at Verita.
Some quotes from the CIS evaluation report: ‘Verita exemplifies a tight-knit international school community. It is values based and showcases its strong commitment to kindness and student well-being, which should be celebrated. In classrooms, the evaluation team observed a number of good educational practices as well as supportive relationships within the community. A second aspect that has impressed the evaluation team relates to the history of the school, from its early foundation as an English language pre-school in 1982, to the moment when the school became Verita. This recognises how much the school has been a trailblazer of innovation since its foundation.’
