Raffles International School recognises that students should be internationally aware and be able to contribute confidently to an inter-connected and inter-dependent world. The school strives to engage students with a range of experiences that will enhance learning and raise awareness of their national and international identity whilst preparing them for life in a diverse global society and competitive global economy.

The global dimension is reflected in the attitudes and values of students, staff and the wider school community.

Definition of International Education

International Education serves as a link between countries and cultures. International Education enables individuals to not only have good diplomatic relationships with one another but also to bring together people who are of different cultures, ethnicities, religions, faiths and who speak different languages aimed at creating a cross-cultural understanding where communication will no longer be a barrier. This cross-cultural understanding becomes transparent when one sees students working together, conducting research or simply engaging themselves in a study period for a class they are taking together. The language, customs, traditions, political relationships and religious beliefs that these students bring are connected through their educational endeavours.
