Raha International School held a ground breaking ceremony this week, marking the start of construction of its new branch campus in Khalifa City.

In line with the first branch of Raha International, the new school will offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum for all phases of the school (Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programme). The current school currently holds an “Outstanding” rating from ADEK, the second time it has attained this top rating from Abu Dhabi’s school inspectorate.

"The school’s reputation has been built on the solid foundation of a true and trusting partnership with our community, who have seen our reputation grow not only within the UAE but globally. Our students now expect to be offered places at the best universities and colleges around the world.” Iain Colledge, Principal RIS

Whilst the existing school will continues to emphasise the “Arts”, the new branch aims to be a centre for “Sporting Excellence”. Sporting facilities include an 8 lane 25-metre training pool, a double size gym with indoor running track and three football pitches.

The two schools will share facilities.

The new Raha International School, Khalifa City will also house a separate Early Years Centre boasting “integrated outdoor learning spaces”.
