Pre-Kindergarten (Age 3-4)
 
Our Pre-Kindergarten is designed to facilitate learning through discovery. Students have the opportunity to play and explore the environment provided within the classroom and campus surroundings. Literacy and numeracy concepts are developed within each student in a stress-free environment. Students proceed with their learning within their individual interests and pace. There are no reading level exit requirements to Kindergarten.

Elementary School (Age 5-10)
 
Grades K-5 focus on literacy skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students learn the art of the English language through the 6+1 Trait Writing Model of Instruction and Assessment and the Daily 5 literacy framework. Numeracy is a daily focus as students work to gain a balance between concepts and procedures, while developing sound mathematical practices. Science, social studies, visual art, music, physical education, and world language are instructed in a student-centered approach of practical hands-on learning. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum.

Middle School (Age 11-13)
 
In the middle school, students rotate to subject-specific teachers. Students are exposed to language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, visual arts, performing arts, physical education, health, and technology. The Middle School curriculum is designed to prepare students for a successful transition into High School. Students are encouraged to pursue their interests and passions. Our goal is to develop independent, successful, life-long learners.

High School (Age 14-17)
 
The RAS High School curriculum qualifies students to earn a US High School Diploma. Student choice in all subject areas allows students to tailor their high school diploma to meet the requirements of desired future studies. Rigorous courses delivered with a focus on the RAS General Learning Outcomes are offered at varying levels of difficulty and commitment. The Advanced Placement (AP) offerings designed by the US College Board culminate in external examinations qualifying students for entry to their university of choice. Beginning in Grade 10 students work with a High School Guidance Counselor to assist in suitable course selection for potential university requirement. Graduation from RAS is, in itself, a passport to potential entry to virtually every university across the globe..
