    Yet another Accreditation for Abercorn!

    April 20, 2015

    It is with great pride that I bring you more news of Abercorn International School’s success, this time in being recognized as ready for accreditation by the Texas Alliance of Accredited Private Schools (TAAPS). The TAAPS accreditation team inspectors spent two days with us here this week, in the final stage of our rigorous accreditation process, to review all aspects of our school operations and curriculum. TAAPS is the organization which “sets the standards for excellence in Texas education”   (www.TAAPS.org) and is a key accrediting agency approved by the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC). They were extremely impressed with the school’s curriculum and educational program, noting that this has already been recognized by the IB in the granting of IB World school status and authorization of the PYP here at Abercorn. They commented on “positive” outcome in all areas, and noted“excellent” facilities. It was yet another validating for Abercorn International School and all that has been achieved here.My thanks go to the staff and faculty for all of their hard work, and to the parents for    supporting this small but ambitious school in its development so far, and our future growth – go Abercorn!
