Al-Hidayah Islamic School is an eminently viable alternative to government schools, and non-government schools run by the followers of religions other than Islam.
The Government Curriculum is vetted and edited to conform to Islamic knowledge and principles and is taught to the highest standards according to the School Curriculum and Standards Authority guidelines. Al-Hidayah has been actively participating in the Government curriculum development process (Curriculum Framework and Outcomes Based Education) since its inception , and is constantly looking for ways to improve the academic performance of the School on a student by student basis.

The performance of schools on NAPLAN tests is greatly affected by a range of student intake and school location characteristics. When comparing schools, it is important to compare like with like. The My School website allows and encourages comparisons with schools that are statistically similar in terms of a range of factors known to affect test performance.

NAPLAN 2014 - Results in numbers
The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) assesses all students in Australian schools in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. For more information visit the NAPLAN website (http://www.nap.edu.au).
The chart below displays average NAPLAN scores for each domain (reading; writing; spelling; grammar and punctuation; and numeracy). Al-Hidayah Islamic School's scores are displayed in blue. Also displayed are average scores for statistically similar schools (SIM) and all Australian schools (ALL). The coloured bars indicate whether the selected school's scores are above, close to, or below the other scores.
From the chart above (click the chart to zoom in), it can be seen that the Year 3 students have performed well in Spelling as the green bar shows that the school average is above similar schools (SIM) and all Australian schools (ALL).
However, more effort needs to be done for Year 5 Numeracy as the school’s average is below similar schools (SIM) and all Australian schools (ALL) as indicated by the dark red bar.

State Govt. Literacy & Numeracy Testing (WALNA)
Average of classes tested
Al-Hidayah Islamic School has a history of achieving results well above the state average as shown in the previous Western Australian Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (WALNA) tests (2000 - 2007). The school is to be commended on achieving these standards when the majority of it’s students have a Language Background Other Than English (LBOTE). These assessments test students’ knowledge and skills in numeracy, reading, spelling and writing. They are designed for “normal range” students, that is, for students for whom, among other things, (LBOTE) is not an issue.
