Taipei European School (TES) is fully accredited by two of the world's leading accreditation bodies: the Council of International Schools (CIS), based in Europe, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), based in the USA. This joint accreditation is evidence of our commitment to academic excellence.

TES is authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to deliver the IB Diploma Programme and is classed as an IB World School. We are also a recognised Cambridge International Examinations Centre (CIE).

TES is a member of FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia). FOBISIA is a membership association founded in 1988. FOBISIA aims to promote a British style education system in schools throughout Asia and gives students the opportunity for collaboration and friendly competition through its annual sporting, musical and other events.

Today FOBISIA has 50 member schools from all of the major Asian countries. All FOBISIA schools must hold at least one of the accreditations above and schools can only join the Federation by way of a vote from a member school at the Regional Heads Conference. TES was one of the very first FOBISIA schools.

Our German Section is accredited by the German government as Exzellente Deutsche Auslandsschule. Our German Section is a member of Deutsche Auslandsschulen International (DAS) and has held this highly-valued status for 22 years. DAS is a network of 145 German overseas schools supported with government grants by the German Foreign Office through the Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen (ZfA). The ZfA, together with the ‘Standing Conference of Ministers of Education of the sixteen Länder’ (KMK), conduct regular inspections of schools in order to guarantee the highest educational and organisational standards.

Our French Section is part of an international network of schools overseen by the Agence pour l'enseignement français à l'étranger (AEFE). All French Section primary and secondary classes (up to Troisième) have been accredited by the French Ministry of Education. The French Section’s application to have its Seconde class accredited is currently in progress. In 2016-2017, the French Section opens a Terminale class. The French Section plans to have its first French Baccalauréat graduates in 2017. 

The Dutch Language and Culture Programme (Nederlandse taal- en cultuurprogramma) is facilitated by the Board and the Head Teacher of De Oranje Dumpling. The programme is overseen by the Dutch Ministry of Education.
