Agora International School Madrid’s PISA 2017 results exceed those of Japan

Agora International School Madrid achieved results that significantly exceeded the average results for Spanish schools and those of Japan, the highest country in the world ranking. The school’s results in Reading and Mathematics were outstanding.


Ágora International School Madrid achieved fantastic results in the Program for the International Assessment of Students (PISA) tests, far exceeding both the Spanish average and the results achieved by Japan, the top country in the ranking. The PISA tests are a series of standardised tests in Mathematics, Science and Reading which are taken by 15-year-old students in more than 70 countries worldwide and which are intended to provide a reliable international academic performance indicator.

The tests are administered by the OECD and the school enters the scheme voluntarily each year in order to obtain an independent overview of our academic status within an international context. This year, Agora International School Madrid achieved an average of 559 points, higher than that of Japan (529 points) and significantly higher than the Spanish average (492 points). Our results in Reading and Mathematics were outstanding, recording scores well above those of Japan and at the top of the overall rankings.

We extend our warmest thanks to the students, teachers and families who have worked together over the years to create the exceptionally positive learning environment that we enjoy at Agora Madrid, instilling in our students a sense of hard work, commitment, cooperation and academic confidence, and enabling them to achieve these outstanding results. Congratulations!!
