“We welcome the targets and recommendations set out within the report itself and will use these to help drive forward our School Improvement Plan.

We were so persistent to meet the UAE National target of 510 points, and luckily we exceeded it. This reflects nothing but our commitment to deliver high quality education in line with the international standards,” she added.

This was the 2nd year the school has participated in TIMSS after taking part for the first time in 2011.
