The MSA accredits Casvi International American School because we follow the American Common Core Standards. These standards aim to develop critical thinking, problem-solving and provide students with the analytical skills necessary to succeed in the future.
They also focus on multiple intelligences and the development of individual talents, with special attention to the impact on such essential aspects as cognitive, affective and social aspects of students.
In order to achieve MSA accreditation as an authorized American school in Spain, a series of requirements must be met, including the following:
-Having a high educational quality guaranteed to the entire community.

These standards provide teachers, parents and students with a clear set of tools to ensure that students gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in college, career and life, regardless of where they live.
The standards are aligned with college expectations. In addition, they promote equity by ensuring that all students are perfectly able to collaborate and compete with students from both within their own country and around the world
This is very important in today’s world. We are facing an increasingly globalized world where people travel to other countries both to study and to work. Therefore, it is very important to be prepared for this situation.
