Academic Excellence

Opportunities to excel and academic excellence are central to the International School of Western Australia’s offering. Our history of outstanding results reflects the immense impact of our dedicated and passionate teachers who inspire and challenge our students to pursue excellence and develop a passion for learning.

Our unique offerings of the International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement and Western Australian curriculum, inspire and challenge our students.

ISWA students consistently perform well above average in all year levels and subjects compared to the State, National and International averages. Given that for some of our students, English is their second language, the results are even more impressive.

ISWA is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s top schools for the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).
