Founded in 1885, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has been working to establish and maintain high standards for all levels of education – from Pre-KG to the doctoral level – longer than any other accreditation agency in the United States.
NEASC is an independent, voluntary, non-profit membership organization which connects and serves over 2,000 public and independent schools, technical and career institutions, colleges, and universities in New England plus international schools in more than 65 nations worldwide. A globally recognized standard of excellence, NEASC Accreditation attests to a school’s high quality and integrity. The four NEASC commissions decide matters of accreditation in the context of research-driven standards reviewed by their membership.
Colleges and employers look more favorably on students who have come from NEASC accredited schools, with some colleges and universities in the U.S. not accepting students from schools without NEASC accreditation.
Despite it being a KHDA requirement, NIS is one of only a few international schools in Dubai to be awarded the NEASC accreditation.
