From what I've read/heard of Polish Arabians, they were bred to be more athletic and "useable" than your average Egyptian or Crabbet bred Arab, so it's within the realm of possibility that she could have that much scope and be pure Arab.
My mare is mostly Polish, with a little Crabbet, on her dad's side (her mom is unknown but I'm pretty sure she was probably mostly Polish too), and she's a scopey jumper, even at 25! I haven't jumped her seriously because of her age but I have free lunged her over a tiny jump or two (2ft aprox) and she cleared them with about 2 feet to spare. Even after getting comfortable with them, she was still clearing them with plenty of room and asking for more. Anything is possible!
She's adorable, whatever she is!
