Like many other QSI schools, QSI International School of Djibouti is accredited in the United States by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA).  

QSI Djibouti was reaccredited during our Spring 2022 reaccreditation visit.

The Middle States Association (MSA) is a worldwide leader in accreditation and school improvement. For over 130 years, Middle States has been helping school leaders establish and reach their goals, develop strategic plans, promote staff development, and advance student achievement.

Why does accreditation matter?

  • MSA accreditation validates that a school meets internationally recognized standards of quality. It also affirms that a school represents itself honestly in its stated mission and values.
  • MSA accreditation is recognized across the U.S. and around the world. The accreditation status of a school can also be a requirement for eligibility for some grants and scholarships, as well as university admissions. MSA is also recognized by the Department of Education as a gatekeeper for schools offering Title IV funding.
  • Accreditation is an optional process—it is not mandated by the government. Our school has made the deliberate decision to seek accreditation and has committed to meeting the standards and expectations of the Middle States Association.
