Bangkok, 6 October 2021 – CIS is recognised worldwide as a leader of school evaluation and accreditation, which will only accept schools that show a commitment to high quality international education. In the words of CIS, schools accepted into the fold must have ‘achieved high standards of professional performance in international education and has a commitment to continuous improvement.’ The voyage from starting the process to full accreditation takes up to three years, so for DBS to achieve this at the end of its fourth year is truly remarkable.
To become accredited by CIS requires the hard work and collaboration of the entire staff at DBS, not just the academic team, which highlights the togetherness present at the school. Prior to the Team Evaluation school visit, the entire teaching team collaborated on various areas of the final report, highlighting the areas of outstanding work at the school and also the areas that we wish to improve. The process gave our staff the chance to really reflect on the everyday practices of the school and identify what makes DBS stand out. Preparing the report also gave the academic team a better appreciation of what colleagues do in other sections of the school.
The final step of the process was the whole school evaluation from a team of leaders in education from institutions around SE Asia. Although the Team Evaluation visit was challenging, especially as it was held online, it turned out to be both a thoroughly rewarding and also a validating experience. To have areas that we knew we excelled in to be recognised by our peers brought an immense amount of pride and satisfaction from all at DBS. Areas of significant praise included the development of a culture where innovative teaching and learning practices are encouraged, and the development within the students of creative thinking and problem solving. Also receiving praise was the school’s Well-being programme, which is central to all that we do at DBS.
As with all accredited members of CIS, the journey does not end here. Spurred on by our success, DBS will move forwards on its path of continuous improvement in all areas and aspects of school life. The teamwork that got us this far, between the academic and administrative teams, the students and the parents, will ensure that the future at DBS continues to be very bright.
DBS is also offering scholarship opportunities for Y3-Y12 students, or those between the ages of 7-17 years, who excel in either English and Maths, Sport, Music, Art, Drama, or as an All-Rounder. Successful students can receive scholarships with up to 50% discount on their tuition fee.
