Even though this will be QSI International School of Trinidad’s (TND) final academic year to operate, the excitement of learning is heard throughout the building daily. Quality Schools International (QSI) is well known to have a positive impact on students around the world; and it’s been no different here in Trinidad. The families have been appreciative of the solid academic and positive learning environment that their children have experienced over the past 5 years. Working with the teachers, staff, students, and parents during this school year has been my privilege. I wish everyone all the best with their future plans.

I am a Third Culture Kid. I was born in Liberia and lived overseas (in Liberia, Ethiopia, Bolivia and Peru) until I attended college. After graduating from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania I had many jobs that paid the bills but did not fulfill me, until I “accidentally” became a teacher, in the Fall of 1999. From the moment I stepped into my first classroom of 6th graders, I knew that education would define the rest of my working life.

Dear QSI Shenyang Community,
Welcome to the QSI International School of Shenyang website. We hope you find the site informative and useful.
QSI Shenyang opened its doors to the expat community of Shenyang in August of 2012. The school is currently located in a newly developed gated residential complex in the Hunnan District, not far from Shenyang’s Taoxian International Airport.
The Middle States Association (MSA) is a worldwide leader in accreditation and school improvement. For over 125 years, Middle States has been helping school leaders establish and reach their goals, develop strategic plans, promote staff development, and advance student achievement.
QSI Schools are accredited through MSA. QSI International School of Trinidad is working on self-study to achieve full accreditation. As part of the self-study, the school is identifying areas for growth and implementing a community-supported action plan to push the boundaries of success and achievement in the identified areas.
Currently Quality Schools International is working to achieve System-wide accreditation through MSA. Systems accreditation will allow QSI to reflect on where we are now, where we want to be in 5-7 years, and develop plans to reach our goals. MSA will review QSI’s plans to strengthen our organization and implement organization-wide improvement plans. Each of our schools will still be individually accredited, and MSA teams will visit each of our schools to verify that each school meets the standards for accreditation.

What is Mastery Learning?
Mastery Learning is an educational approach in which students must achieve mastery of a subject before moving forward to learn subsequent information about that subject; learning builds on established understanding. Students are given the time and support they need to reach mastery.

QSI is a place that really pushes teachers to take an interest in their students and really care about them as human beings.
