    Kareem Achieved one of the Highest Scores in the PISA

    In March, all schools in Abu Dhabi participated in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) testing. This testing was preparation for a triennial international survey which aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old pupils. The second round of testing in March was part of an Emirate wide preparation for the real PISA tests, which are to be held later in the year. Last month 78 of our pupils, who were born in 2002, sat tests in English, Maths and Science. We were very proud to be notified by ADEK that one of our Year 11 pupils, Kareem Elzeftawy, achieved one of the highest individual scores in the mocks. During the Year 11 Leavers assembly Kareem was presented a certificate by the Head Master, Mr Simon Corns. Well done Kareem!
