Colegio Nueva Granda exceeds top international school norms on the  advanced index of education quality. The world’s largest accrediting agency, AdvancED Corporation, rated Colegio Nueva Granada as significantly exceeding international school norms on the Index of Education Quality (IEQ) that results from its comprehensive school evaluation process. This recognition for CNG along with the distinction for fiveyear re-accreditation was announced on October 25 by Dr. Vicki Denmark, Vice President of Education Innovation for AdvancED.  CNG  performance was considerably higher than AdvancED Network Average (AENA) based on rating averages generated in the accreditation evaluations completed at over 32,000 schools worldwide. Dr. Denmark served as Lead Evaluator in conducing a comprehensive evaluation of the school along with a  six-member External Review Team with educational experience in 15 different countries.

In the comparison of   CNG’s external evaluation results and the AdvancED Network Average (AENA) comprised of all schools accredited by AdvancED worldwide, the school significantly surpassed international school norms with 400 points as the highest possible score. CNG
