School Ratings

We are proud to present to you the outstanding reports that we have received from The Department of Education Queensland School Improvement Unit (SIU), the International Baccalaureate (IB) World School Department and now the Sharjah Private Schools Education Authority in regards to the work and results that have been achieved over the last two years.

These reports are highly significant for our school community given that three independent organisations have each individually marked and measured our school as outstanding in teaching and learning.  Moreover, these results have been achieved in both a traditional face-to-face review and in an unprecedented review of our online learning program.

1. Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) - School Performance Review October 2022

The main purpose of this SPR is to assist schools in their continuous improvement journey through an external validation of the progress, quality and capacity to improve in the context of Sharjah Private Education Authority's vision to achieve 'Excellence in Education' by 2024.

2. Education Queensland – School Review Report 2019

This report is a product of a review carried out by a Senior Review Team from Education Queensland’s School Improvement Unit (SIU) in September 2019. Jenny Maier, Assistant Regional Director was the review chair.  Miss Jenny was a senior reviewer in the previous AIS review and, as such, has extensive knowledge of where the school was positioned prior to my appointment as Executive Principal.  The report presents an evaluation of the school’s performance against the nine domains of the National School Improvement Tool. 

Key Findings:

  • Classrooms across the school are ‘hives of engagement’ in learning and a high level of energy pervades the school.
  • The Executive Leadership Team has established clear expectations and beliefs that all students can learn successfully.
  • The significant volume of work carried out by members of the Executive Leadership Team to re-energise and lead the school is apparent.

This was further supported in a letter from Stephen Biggs, Executive Director, DE International, in his letter to Dr. Abdulla A Karam, Director General of the KHDA who stated:          

In September 2019, a quality assurance review of AIS Sharjah was undertaken by the Queensland DoE School Improvement Unit and confirmed the school is exceeding the benchmarks of the Australian National School Improvement Tool.
