What WSA says: This Not for Profit school was the brainchild of Sheikh Sultan Al Qassimi himself, who ensured every part of the school truly represented Australia’s state of Victoria. From the building to the staff, he imported everything from the architect to the curriculum to his native Sharjah, and has made something really rather special. Although the school does not release the results of its students, its participation in national and regional education events, the calibre of the Australian staff and its highly impressive facilities, suggests its students are given the opportunity to succeed.

Sport & Extracurricular Activities: VISS has some of the finest sporting facilities available in the UAE while the school benefits from Australian focus on sport and physical health. VISS offers students sporting opportunities via Extra Curricula Activities, as well as school-wide, national and regional tournaments.
