What does it mean to you as parents if Kormilda College is fully accredited with the Council of International Schools (CIS)?
Its a good question. It means that we undertake a year-long analysis of all that we do and say we do, every five years. It means that our practices are monitored by a visiting team of educators who stay with us for a week, examining the school in minute detail, and making a judgement on the quality of teaching and learning against international standards. It means that you can be assured that all teaching and learning, including assignments and the marking of these, are of the highest quality. It means that if a student receives a certain grade for an assignment or an exam, that this grade is universally recognised as being what it is and not inflated according to how the teacher felt at the time. It means that you can feel confident that your child is receiving the very best education possible in the Northern Territory.
