It is a matter of pride for the school as this is the first group of graduating students from Bangladesh who were awarded with the WACE certificates. The Australian International School (AusIS) Dhaka, Bangladesh is an international school serving students from three to eighteen years old. The school exercises the Western Australian Curriculum and is accredited by the Western Australian government. AusIS is the first overseas school to be affiliated with the prestigious Association of Independent School of Western Australia (AISWA).

At the Senior Campus, inspections, moderations and external exams are monitored by the Western Australian Curriculum Council. The students graduate with the Western Australian Certificate of Education at the end of Year 12.

The curriculum framework integrates eight learning areas to ensure a balanced education and a strong foundation for each child. This includes, English, Mathematics, Science, Health, Technology, Arts, Society and the Environment, and Mother Language.

To ensure a quality education system comparable to that of schools in Australia, Australian International School, Dhaka, participates in annual Benchmark Testing which provides data on student educational outcomes. These results are compared to those of similar students in Western Australia.
