Raha International School, Gardens, Abu Dhabi Inspection Report

A popular and successful school, Raha, was again rated Outstanding in its latest ADEK report. Its ambitious Principal has what he terms ‘a rather long to-do’ list’. With its broad mix of nationalities across pupils and staff, Raha has a ‘new world’ feel in an environment designed with a semblance to a traditional Arabic village. A second branch campus was launched in September 2020 and offers enhanced sports facilities that will be used by both schools.

LET'S GO

If a school has been subjected to an inspection, then you will find the latest report here. In some countries schools are subject to annual inspections, while in others schools can go on a rotation and are inspected approximately every other year. Some countries (like the UK), make the frequency, at least partially dependent on performance - and schools can go 5-10 years between inspections. Before diving into any report, we advise you read this article first. It provides invaluable insights as to what to look for, and how to ‘read’ each school review so you can weigh its value and insights for your child.
