Quality Adventist Schools
Quality Adventist Schools
The Quality Adventist Schools (QAS) Program is a school improvement framework based on world’s best practice and provides a process for schools to engage in the further strengthening of professional learning culture.

QAS is designed to be the cornerstone for school-based review processes and meaningful professional conversations between schools and system leadership in relation to shared strategic goals.

 

The four domains on which the framework is based are: Adventist Identity; Learning & Teaching; Leading School Improvement; and Community Partnerships. These domains (or core building blocks) were agreed upon by over 100 Adventist educators across Australia who came together to create this document.

 

The framework provides a way for the school and its community to have greater ownership of and commitment to the success of the school.
