As the Director of QSI International School of Chisinau, it is my privilege to welcome you to our school and website. Quality Schools International (QSI) is a non-profit organization with 37 schools in 30 countries. Our school of 90 students is located in the Buiucani district of Chisinau, Moldova. We serve children from 21 different countries, providing an American curriculum and a place for families to connect and nurture relationships. QSI schools maintain high academic standards with equal emphasis on the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and success orientations—in an accepting, friendly and supportive environment. QSI Chisinau is a warm and welcoming multi-cultural community. Our students, parents, teachers and support staff have one goal in mind . . . success for all! 

QSI Chisinau is accredited through Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges and registered through the College Board. Accreditation and College Board registration are both very important for our international community. These certifications let parents, students, and other educational institutions know we prepare students for the future. With our College Board registration, we are now a testing site for SAT, PSAT, and AP exams. In terms of accreditation, MSA accreditation is a seven-year cycle with a mid-term review required for all schools after 3.5 years. All stakeholders are involved in this process so, please let me know if you are interested in assisting with this process. 

QSI Chisinau offers classes for students starting at age 3 through high school. We pride ourselves on the amount of individual attention we can give to students. Academic quality is our goal. Our classrooms typically have ten students or fewer. In addition to core subjects, we offer the special subjects of art, music, physical education, technology, and other languages. Students study their chosen language: Romanian, Russian, French, or Intensive English. Our secondary students take college preparatory courses and have the opportunity to take AP courses as well. Secondary I-IV students have access to QSI’s virtual high school which offers a variety of courses. 

In addition to our academic program, we offer a variety of after-school activities. I’d like to encourage our parents to become actively involved in school life through many venues such as field trips, special events, or even leading your own after-school activity. We have an active Parent Support Group as well. It gives me great pleasure to facilitate these kinds of school–community interactions with a focus on the best interests of each student in the school.
