DAIS Goals and Growth

DAIS Accreditation History

The U.S. Department of Education- describes approved accrediting organizations such as Middle States as a “reliable authority as to the quality of education.” Accreditation is an external, objective validation of school quality and student achievement that fosters continuous school improvement.

2002 Dostyk American International School was founded for students from Preschool to Grade Eight.  It was located near the Dostyk Village gate.

2002 TCO signed a contract with International School Services (ISS) to provide school management and assume the responsibilities of school operations.

2003 The school received its first full accreditation from the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges.

2012 The school received its second accreditation from the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges.

2015 DAIS, having achieved the action plans laid out in its second accreditation designed three new action plans.  The Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges approved these action plans.

2016 DAIS completed their mid-term report for accreditation and were granted full accreditation until 2020.

DAIS started with 13 students; today we have approximately

90 students, our highest enrollment ever.

Each year we survey our community to collect feedback on how we might improve.
