AMAG Achieves Successful WASC Accreditation

 AMAG Achieves Successful WASC Accreditation

This week Al Maha Academy for Girls have followed the same path trodden by Al Jazeera Academy last week to become the second of the Ta’allum Academies granted a prestigious WASC accreditation. Next week it is the turn of Al Maha Boys’ Academy. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges is a respected worldwide organisation which has provided a vehicle to move school community members into a cycle of continuous school improvement. This achievement is the culmination of 3 years of hard work by all staff in which the Academy has conducted a thorough self -evaluation and then devised a follow up Action Plan.

The WASC team praised the very positive ethos of the Girls’ Academy. In particular, the Review Team, led by Chair of the Visit Team, Mrs Nancy Brownell highlighted ‘the strengths in leadership, the cohesion, camaraderie and willingness of staff to help and support each other, the wonderful respectful students and the supportive parent body. We are also deeply impressed by the Academy’s commitment to the ‘Global Goals’ programme’ This is a United Nations initiative and universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

Principal of Al Maha Girls’ Academy, Alison McDonald, paid tribute to the magnificent efforts of her staff and the whole Academy community saying ‘We are honoured to receive WASC accreditation. It is truly a team effort from students, staff and parents. Our girls’ are the focus of all we do every day. We place the highest emphasis on quality teaching and learning. Pleasingly this is exactly what the Evaluation team are reporting. AMAG can move forward with confidence.’ 

Dr Mohammed Saefan, Director of Education said ‘This well-deserved recognition is testament to the conscientious hard work and dedication of leadership and staff at the Academy. The accreditation is further proof that Ta’allum Academies offer high quality education with a strong basis of Islamic values.’

Mr Ahmed Al Mannai said, ‘We are delighted at this success and to see the fruits of the whole Academy’s labour. Al Maha Girls’ is contributing strongly to Ta’allum’s progress.’
