AISB is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA).
AISB undertakes a comprehensive and externally-reviewed self-study every seven years, to ensure that all areas of school operations continue to meet MSA's high standards for quality. Our most recent re-accreditation was in 2012. In August 2017, we began our new self-study process.
