We're proud to announce that Beijing Royal School has become a WASC candidate school since January 2017. WASC is one of the six official academic bodies responsible for the accreditation of universities and schools both inside and outside the United States. Accreditation means that a school is a trustworthy institution for student learning with high standards of educational quality and academic integrity. What BRS values more is how the school can actually improve its performance through the accreditation process.
We had our initial visit from WASC in November 2016. The visiting committee interviewed the school board, the school administration, staff, students and parents. Rigorous observations were also conducted on every aspect of the school’s operation. The visiting committee celebrated with us our achievements over the years, and recognized our commitment and also our actual effort to grow into a top-tier international school. Valuable suggestions and guidance were also given by the visiting committee on how BRS can further improve.
Our school-wide learner outcomes, namely “Self-awareness, Effective communication, Critical thinking and Problem Solving, Responsible and Involved Citizenship”, are in alignment with the philosophy of “global competency” which WASC believes is critical for today’s education. The responsibility which we have given ourselves to help the students understand the Chinese culture was greatly acclaimed by the visiting committee.
