Raha International is set to have a second campus from September 2020, but with a difference. The branch school, to be known as Raha International Khalifa City, will focus on sports, with its 'state of the art' facilities available for use for both schools.

Al Raha International Khalifa City will open in September 2020 to cater for up to 3,000 new students from KG to Grade 12, one and a half times the 2,000 students at the existing Raha International located in the Gardens area of Khalifa City. The  new school will have a sports focus to complement the arts focus of the existing Raha International.

The two schools will share facilities. 

Like Raha International Gardens, the new school will follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programs for students aged from 4 – 18 years. 

Raha International is currently the only IB continuum school in Abu Dhabi.

The new campus will offer a centre of ‘Sporting Excellence’ to complement the sports activities in both school campuses.

In terms of facilities the sports focus translates into an 8 lane 25-metre training pool, a double size gym with indoor running track and two football pitches.

Raha International Khalifa City will also offer a separate Early Years Centre with an "emphasis on safe, innovative and integrated outdoor learning spaces".

The school is being designed by CPG Consultants from Singapore, architects responsible for award-winning educational facilities globally, with sustainability as a key driver in the design.
