AdvancED Accreditation

Institutions seeking to gain or retain accreditation by AdvancED must meet AdvancED Standards. These Standards focus on systems within a school and systematic methods of attaining high student performance and organizational effectiveness. The Standards address preparing students with skills they will need for the future and include high expectations for professional practice. The Standards require demonstrated growth in student learning and achievement; a commitment to developing learning, thinking and life skills for all students; and formal structures whereby each student is well known. The power of the Standards lies in the connections and linkages between and among the Standards


Green Heights International School has been accredited since 2006 and again in 2011 by the Northwest Accreditation Commission, now a part of AdvancED, valid through June 30, 2017.

We also strongly encourage you to visit the AdvancED website at where you can access our school's profile.
