INSPECTIONS AND ACCREDITATIONS

 
 

CIS NEASC accredited

As part of Taaleem’s strategy of continuous improvement and self-evaluation, Taaleem requires each school to pursue accreditation from an independent accreditation body of institutions and academic specialists.

Accreditation is the process used to ensure that schools meet and maintain international standards of quality and integrity regarding academics, administration and related services.

All Taaleem schools apply to become accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), and some of our schools also attain authorisation and accreditation from the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), all global leaders in this field.


Since 2010, AAM has joint accreditation with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS).


Accreditation by NEASC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and indicates that a school meets or exceeds established criteria. Accreditation by CIS means AAM is meeting high level, challenging standards, which are designed specifically by and for American / International Schools.

Dubai Schools' Inspection Bureau (DSIB)/KHDA
Every school in Dubai is regularly inspected by the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) on behalf of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). The DSIB is the Dubai equivalent of UK's OFSTED whereby schools have a rigorous inspection where key performance is noted.

The report includes a summary of overall performance, highlighting key strengths and recommendations, along with more detailed analysis of areas including progress and attainment, personal and social development, teaching and assessment, curriculum, school management and relationships with parents and the community.

AAM has received an overall rating standard of ‘Good’ since the introduction of the inspections in 2009. View the latest 2016/17 report here.
