A school that encourages creativity and innovation needs to be continually improving and keeping its teachers up to date.
Our continuing education plan helps them stay current with pedagogical innovations and educational trends. It encourages them to seek new ways to motivate themselves.
In addition, we rely on a committee of experts who advise us on specific topics such as pedagogical levels, creativity and innovation, health and nutrition, emotional intelligence, psychological well-being, sport or art, to ensure a high quality standard in all areas of the school.
The school is engaged in the accreditation process with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
This accreditation requires reaching 6 standards and 10 Learning Principles in the management of the center, teachers, educational experience, infrastructure, healthy environment and so on up to 10 more points.
The NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) standard for teachers is articulated through 6 indicators that are validated each year:
· Qualified staff
· Recruitment process
· Continuous training
· Continuous assessment
· Common purpose
· Commitment to the team
