We are very proud to announce that our accreditation visit was a complete success.

Accreditation by Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) is one of the most sought after accreditation models for high quality independent schools in the United States and around the world.

American School Puerto Vallarta (ASPV) will now hold a dual accreditation from both Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)/AdvancED and SAIS!

It is with much pride that we also announce that we are the first school in Mexico to receive this dual distinction. SAIS standards focus specifically on independent schools so are particularly applicable to our school. Accreditation is one way our school ensures a commitment to excellence and to continuous improvement.

The visiting committee was made up of five members, all heads of school or chief financial officers with years of experience. They were very impressed with our staff, students and parents! When asked about the visit one of the team members described the experience like this: “when I asked a parent to describe ASPV, she said to me: my child is loved, challenged and protected…what else is there?”

We want to thank all committee members, teachers, parents, alumni and board members for their hard work, and to all of you for your support of ASPV.
