Victoria International School of Sharjah (VISS) is a premium provider of international education and a not-for-profit IB World school in Sharjah.  VISS is a learning community that supports the attainment of excellence. We offer the IB Diploma Programme as our flagship exit programme. An alternative pathway is available generally for our Grade 10 students called the Global Citizen Diploma Programme. This programme is based on a credit points system and allows our students to develop on a continuum from Grade 10.

Grade 11 and 12 are the most crucial and demanding years in a student’s academic life. We aim to prepare students who are critical thinkers, confident, reflective and responsible global citizens, capable of facing the future with resilience and optimism. The skills gained during their education in the VISS exit programmes will serve students exceptionally well throughout their further education.

VISS staff are highly motivated, appropriately qualified and internationally minded experienced teachers. Exceptional quality support is offered at a structural and individual level for our students in order to create a highly conducive environment for learning and teaching. VISS has a fully resourced learning centre that boasts hundreds of academic calibre titles, e-resources, and a wide range of subject specific resources suitable for courses of study offered at our school.

Our school is designed for 21st century education – using flexible learning spaces, the latest in technology and most outstanding facilities conducive to both independent and collaborative learning specifically designated for senior students.

Senior school team works together to ensure that students’ well-being is our top priority and offers support and guidance through the two year programme.  We believe in maintaining open communication and a strong partnership between home, school and the student in order to provide the best support we can for our students. VISS has a dedicated Careers Counsellor, CAS Coordinator, Extended Essay Coordinator and a Student Counsellor to guide and advise students through their journey in the exit programmes.
