UAE National Agenda

UAE Vision 2021

In 2014, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the UAE National Agenda as an extension to achieve the UAE Vision 2021.

The United Arab Emirates Vision 2021 has education as its foundation, both explicitly and implicitly.

The Vision 2021 includes aspirations for citizenship, a spirit of entrepreneurship, enhanced educational attainment, and a knowledge-based economy driven by innovation, research, science, and technology. The realization of these aspirations requires a world-class education system, responsive to national needs and aligned to international standards.

TIMMS 2015 school results show that:

  • 81% of the students are above intermediate level in Mathematics compared to 92% in Science.
  • 19% of the students are classified as below intermediate based on their Mathematics skills and this represents 8% of the students in Science.


PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is a benchmarking test for 15-year-olds and is held every 3 years in Science, Mathematics and Reading.

  • Our students have achieved significantly higher mean scores in Mathematical Literacy, Reading Literacy and Scientific Literacy compared to the average achievement of males and females of Sharjah Private International Schools.
  • No students "AT RISK" as none of our students have scored below Level 2 in all four domains.
  • Conducted every 3 years.


CAT4 (Cognitive Abilities Test Fourth Edition) assesses developed abilities, Verbal Reasoning(thinking with words), Quantitative (or Numerical) Reasoning (thinking with numbers), Non -Verbal Reasoning (thinking with shapes) and Spatial Ability(thinking with shapes and space).


ASSET is a skill based test that measures student’s conceptual understanding, benchmarks school’s performance at an international, national & regional level with actionable insights through easy-to-understand reports.




BASELINE and BASELINE Tests provide you with an efficient, child-friendly and reliable way of assessing literacy, language and communication and mathematics in three short, picture-based sections that require no reading, as they enter school (Baseline) and at the end of their first year in school (Baseline Progress).
