QSI International School of Benin has been operating in Cotonou since August 2012. We are accredited by MSA (Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools) and associated with NWEA, which provides our school with MAP Growth Testing, a standardized test that assists student growth in English and Mathematics. We are a licensed school in Benin from preschool through secondary. Our accreditation action plans are focused on 21st-century learning. As an international school, QSI Benin has over 90 students from 19 nations and 20 teachers from 9 nations.

QSI International School of Benin believes in a personalized approach to instruction leading to mastery within a positive and enjoyable learning environment. It offers a challenging academic curriculum for students ages 3 through 17. Studies are tailored to meet the needs of each individual student to the highest degree possible.

The school encompasses Pre-K through Secondary IV with a current enrollment of 92. The middle school’s enrollment is 11 and there are 18 students in the secondary (high school). QSI Benin represents 19 different nationalities, with 33% of them being citizens of the United States.

Grading System:
Teachers evaluate mastery of each essential unit with an A or B. B represents mastery at a sufficiently high level, and A represents mastery at a sufficiently high level, with the student consistently demonstrating higher-order thinking skills. Mediocre or poor work, resulting in Cs and Ds, is not accepted, as students are required to engage in an essential unit until they achieve mastery. Students who master a unit with a B evaluation may attempt to demonstrate a higher level of mastery at a later time, within a given time period, to change the evaluation to an A. Time periods (quarters, semesters, terms) are not evaluated; student performance is assessed on each essential unit completed.
