Yantai Huasheng International Education Development Co., Ltd. and iSC partnered in 2015 to build and develop iSC’s seventh international school in Yantai. In April 2015, YHIS became Yantai’s first English language international school licensed by the Shandong Provincial Government and opened its doors August 9, 2016.
YHIS has received full accreditation status from AdvancED, the world’s largest community of education professionals. AdvancED is a merger of three U.S. regional accreditation association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions, representing 36,000 schools in United States and 70 other nations. AdvancED was formed through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012.
