QSI International School of Shenzhen has been accredited by the Middle States Association (MSA) since 2006.

QSI schools maintain their accreditation with MSA through a continual process of identifying areas for growth and implementing a community-supported action plan to push the boundaries of success and achievement in specific identified areas.

Quality Schools International is currently working to achieve System-wide accreditation through MSA. Systems accreditation will allow QSI to reflect on where we are now, where we want to be in 5-7 years, and develop plans to reach our goals. MSA will review QSI’s plans to strengthen our organization and implement organization-wide improvement plans. Each of our schools will still be individually accredited, and MSA teams will visit each of our schools to verify that each school meets the standards for accreditation. All QSI schools are involved in some aspect of preparedness toward accreditation at any given time. 

Accreditation provides an external mark of excellence understood by colleges and schools worldwide. 


QSI Shenzhen is a member school of both the East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS) and Association of China and Mongolia International Schools  (ACAMIS). 

QSI Shenzhen's Secondary school received authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization in April 2009 and offers IB's Diploma Programme to Secondary students. 



The Middle States Association (MSA) is a worldwide leader in accreditation and school improvement. For over 125 years, Middle States has been helping school leaders establish and reach their goals, develop strategic plans, promote staff development, and advance student achievement.
