Standards of Excellence

Our students prepare for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (iGCSE) in Years 10 and 11, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Years 12 and 13 and achieve results above the world averages.

All of our students graduate with a British School Diploma and the Ecuadorian Baccalaureate. These are two diplomas for exactly the same requirements and each student is awarded the same grades in both. In addition, we are accredited by the IBO to offer the IB Diploma and many of our students achieve this, giving them a total of three internationally recognised diplomas. Our BSQ Diploma programme of study shares the same principles and values of the IB Diploma.

All of our programmes of study and assessment procedures are accredited and approved by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education, who are empowered to inspect us to ensure quality standards are adhered to. In order to graduate in Ecuador, students must have a legal attainment certificate and transcript for each year of study from Years 7–13.

We are an IB World School, accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. We are licensed and accredited by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education.
