Hi all, I am beginning to think about looking for a new school next academic year. I am familiar with the CIS accreditation process and have looked at NEASC accreditation in some depth. I am also aware that IB schools tend to be better than other schools. My questions are: Out of the range of school accreditation programmes, which ones do you feel are the closest indicator that the school will be one that would be nice to work in? Which accreditations are harder to achieve than others e.g. is CIS harder than WASC? What level of COBIS accreditation indicates that it could be a good British school to work in? I have heard that some schools have financially lubricated their path to becoming IB World Schools? Anyone have first-hand experience of this? If a British school has a DfE number is it as horrible as working in many English state schools? I am open to IB, American and British curriculum schools or none of the above. I am just curious about people's experiences of the different types of accreditation. Thanks.
