PaRK IS is a member of the Cambridge Schools Network and the ECIS (The Educational Collaborative for International Schools). In order to become a part of these elite academic organisations we have proved that we have an extremely strong desire to provide our students with the knowledge and skills to become active global citizens. We have also demonstrated the highest level of commitment to provide the best quality of international education.
Accreditation by Cambridge, ECIS and other international education organisations provides PaRK IS with a strong network of international schools that share the same success paradigms. These networks are extremely useful: we continuously have the opportunity to discuss our work practices and school objectives with large audiences as well as gain inspiration from what is happening in education around the world.
On February 2017 we were officially recognised as a Changemaker school. We are now part of Ashoka’s Changemaker Schools Network, a global community of schools that share the importance of teaching empathy, teamwork, leadership, problem solving, and who believes that all people can change the world to a better place. These schools are bringing innovation into education, and giving children the support to be changemakers – to be people with skills, courage and drive to solve problems and positively change the world.
PaRK International School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

**Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students
across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
