It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Raffles International School, and I hope you will find our website informative and useful. We are a very large Primary school following the Cambridge Primary curriculum in the core subjects of English Mathematics, Science and Information technology and the English National Curriculum in the non-core areas of Art, Music and Physical Exercise. We pride ourselves on being a warm, friendly school with an open-door policy and actively promoting a partnership with parents. We are a multi-cultural school with students of 90 nationalities and staff from more than 30 different countries.
RIS provides students a holistic, rigorous international education for success in an ever-changing world. Thus we do more than just offer an academic curriculum, but also develop critical thinking skills, leadership skills and provide a vast range of extra-curricular activities in the fields of academics, sports, culture and language. We strive to develop internationally minded students, who actively participate in understanding, absorbing and appreciating world cultures representative in their classrooms and in the larger school community. Students also develop a deep understanding of the local Emirati culture and values thus becoming life-long learners and global ambassadors of this ever shrinking world.
RIS Primary School is a warm, welcoming and supportive school where a great importance is placed on all round personal development, as well as academic progress. We provide a high quality, creative and challenging education within a secure, caring and happy environment, where every child experiences a sense of enjoyment and is encouraged to achieve their full potential through a love of learning. We strive to develop strong partnerships with the larger community, like SENSES, a center in our neighborhood for differently abled children. Through the constant reinforcement of our Core Values: Achievement, Collaboration, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility, we empower our students to become reflective practioners, caring and thoughtful global citizens with a strong sense of personal responsibility with consideration and tolerance of others.
We trust that all children should reach their potential and personal best. Through outstanding teaching and curriculum design we strive to enable all children to develop, providing them opportunities to achieve high standards in a stimulating environment. To this end, we strongly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and through effective communication endeavor to keep parents fully informed and engaged in their child's progress and welcome feedback through the various avenues of communication in place.
