Al Worood Private School - (Private)

Al Worood Academy is associated with these prestigious international educational organizations MSA, ECIS, NESA, The College Board. All students are encouraged to write the American PSAT examination at the beginning of Grade 11. This test measures the critical reading; math problem solving and writing skills those students have developed at school. It also gives students firsthand practice for the SAT I test and good scores in the SAT I are vitally important for admission to top American universities. One of the requirements of our 2002-2012 Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) American accreditation is that every three years we must report on our school’s progress.

Our first three-year report for this accreditation period was in the form of an online description of Al-Worood and it was highly commended by MSA. In addition, Al-Worood was approved for continuing accreditation for the 2005-06 school years by the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA) in the USA. To maintain accreditation, our school demonstrated that it continued to meet quality standards and was engaged in an improvement process that enhances student performance. Accreditation demonstrates to our community that we are providing a quality and enriching learning environment for our students.

Al Worood Academy is moreover a centre for the internationally recognized examinations of the University of London Examinations and Assessment Council (Edexcel) and the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate. The past year has been one of continued high achievement and great progress. In 2006-2007, our twenty-fifth academic year, our roll was 2430 students, the highest in the school’s history, and our students’ results in the May/June 2006 British IGCSE, AS and A-level examinations and in the 2005-2006 American PSAT, TOEFL, and SAT tests were excellent. In addition, our graduates were admitted to very competitive courses at top-ranked universities. Al-Worood was approved for continuing accreditation for the 2006-07 school year by the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA) in the USA. To maintain accreditation, our school demonstrated that it continued to meet quality standards and was engaged in an improvement process that enhances student performance. Accreditation demonstrates to our community that we are providing a quality and enriching learning environment for our students.
