Two of our teachers, Daniela Zúñiga and Diana Carles, have been abroad this past week in Paris and Madrid, respectively, to participate as team members in the reaccredidation of Marymount International School (Paris) and the accreditation of Aquinas American School (Madrid).
Daniela Zúñiga has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in collaboration with team members from the Council of International Schools (CIS), both of which organizations have recommended Marymount International School for accreditation; Diana Carles has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in a follow-up visit from October that has enabled Aquinas American School to be recommended for accreditation.
It has been a successful and fruitful venture for both parties. We extend our congratulations to these schools as well as to our teachers for their hard work.
