International Bilingual School at Tainan-Science-Park (IBST) Receives Six-Year Western Association of Schools and Colleges  (WASC) Accreditation  

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is our regional accrediting commission for schools. For the past year, IBST staff have collectively worked together to self-evaluate our school. Our self-evaluation report and documentation were formally submitted to the WASC Commission. WASC followed up by visiting our school in March to verify our successes, improvements, and areas of growth still to be worked on. Going through this accreditation process is one important way that schools engage in a continual improvement cycle. Receiving accreditation from WASC provides an essential, external level of accountability that affirms that institutions are providing an acceptable level of quality education by following the WASC criteria. On May 2, we received our official accreditation status, a six-year accreditation through June 30, 2028. This is the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded. On behalf of the IBST staff, we would like to thank our parents and community for contributing to this process and for making this school and community one of which we are proud of.
