Accreditations

BHS awarded International Accreditations

Council of International Schools

CISLogoIn November, 2014 BHS received accreditation by the Council of International Schools,  joining over 400 schools worldwide, including Pearson College UWC in Canada, United Nations International School in the United States, the American School in London, Tokyo International School and the International School of Paris.

Schools that are CIS accredited have demonstrated their dedication to providing a high quality education in an international context. They demonstrate a commitment to inspiring excellence in their students as well as developing the whole individual.  They also foster, and model, self-evaluation and self-improvement.  Colleges and universities worldwide acknowledge that CIS Accredited schools develop the standards and the qualities they seek in their students.

To achieve accreditation, a school must meet stringent requirements and undergo a lengthy and in-depth process. In his congratulatory letter to the school’s management team, Dr. Graham Ranger (Director of School Support & Evaluation with the Council of International Schools) commented,

“In the classroom, the Visiting Team noted the level of commitment among the faculty and staff to the students, highlighted by a strong sense of pride and accomplishment that is palpable at BHS.”

Accreditation by NEASC indicates that the member school has achieved high standards of professional performance and is committed to continuing improvement. In the final report, specific strengths highlighted included the teachers’ ongoing nurturing of their students, the students’ impressive demeanour, the school's celebration of student effort and success, the school's active role in supporting many community initiatives, and the effective programmes and activities which complement the formal curriculum in support of the BHS Guiding Statements. The Visiting Team commented on the “enthusiastic student engagement” and “the joy of learning” that was evident in the classrooms.
