Step 1: Attend a Tour & Assessment

All assessments are carried out in our school on a Monday but bookings are essential!
The Australian International School only accepts students who will manage the curriculum and all children who are considered for a place are assessed. The assessment process is designed to evaluate a child’s potential for future success. We look at the whole child and not just at academic ability, we evaluate behaviour, attitude and character. All assessments are age appropriate as per the Ministry of Education Age Policy.
Junior School applicants are given age appropriate assessments based on work our current pupils undertake. The Australian International School uses online based tests in grades 4 – 11 (OARS – Online Assessment and Reporting System), an interview, writing samples and other paper tests are administered to assist in the selection process. Students with passports from GCC countries must also pass an assessment in Arabic.
