As parents we seek to give our children the best that we can provide. One way we do this is to provide our children with more opportunities than we had ourselves.

That one word - opportunity - summarises all that is great about Victoria International School of Sharjah. Founded by His Highness, Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammad al Qassimi, Ruler of Sharjah, in conjunction with the State Government of Victoria in Australia, VISS was built to provide opportunities for the children of citizens and residents of the UAE to grow and develop into not just well educated, fine young men and women, but just as importantly, thoughtful, future leaders across our world. With its highly qualified staff, world leading curriculum, and remarkable facilities, VISS is a lighthouse school for education.

Opportunities at VISS seem endless - whether they be opportunities to learn and develop intellect and capacity to think, to work together, to solve problems, to debate or speak in public, to understand and appreciate music, to perform, to play sport, to lead, to develop business skills, to be innovative, to build emotional intelligence, to realise one’s potential, or to feel safe, secure and happy at school. Taking advantage of this opportunity requires a three-way partnership between school, home and student.

Our students work hard, because we have high expectations for them, but the closer school and home work together, the better the outcomes for each boy or girl.

Dean Pyrah - Executive Head at VISSVictoria International School of Sharjah was founded with one purpose - to build a space for all students to grow, learn and create with each passing day.
