Our Accreditation Journey
In 2020, TSIS began a process of transition from international accreditation with the Council of International Schools (CIS) to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ASC WASC).
In February 2021, the school received official notification that Thai Sikh International School had been awarded full Accredition by ASC WASC. The ACS WASC Commissioner granted the accreditation based on information provided by the school and the satisfactory completion of the accreditation visit.
The school is currently working on a lengthy self-study assessment in a process which engages all the school’s stakeholders in Home and Focus Groups centred on student learning. The next ASC WASC Team Visit is expected in mid-May 2022.

About ASC WASC Accreditation
Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ASC WASC) accreditation is an ongoing six-year cycle of quality whereby the school demonstrates the capacity, commitment, and competence to support high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement.
The school assesses its programme and its impact on student learning with respect to the ACS WASC criteria/indicators and other accreditation factors. Schools are expected to participate in self-study training provided by ACS WASC throughout the 18 months prior to the full self-study visit. This self-study process culminates in the refinement of a 3–5 year schoolwide action plan.
Throughout the cycle, a school is expected to address the schoolwide action plan and demonstrate evidence of acceptable student achievement and school improvement.
