CIS/NEASC

This week we have reflected and celebrated the work of our learning community through our CIS/NEASC reaccreditation and virtual visits with our evaluators.


We are proud to share that we have met and exceeded in a multitude of areas and now moving towards our “Future Aspirations”. We are one of only six schools world-wide currently in this stage of accreditation.

We can’t help but roar with Leopard Pride when we reflect on the outstanding teaching and learning here at DAA. It is only with the incredible commitment of our teachers, the resilience of our students and the support of our parents that we continue to provide a positive and engaging learning environment for our students.
