IAS is accredited by three unique governing bodies: the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), AdvancED, and the Polish Ministry of Education (MENIS). We leverage the expertise of each organization to provide an aligned curriculum across Elementary, Middle and High School programs. The IB Diploma Program (DP) is offered at the High School level, while our Elementary and Middle Schools are designed to prepare students to meet the IBO standards
