Pre-Kindergarten
 
Our pre-kindergarten is designed to facilitate learning through discovery. Students have the opportunity to play in, and explore, the classroom and campus environment. Focus is placed on the development of the students’ approaches to learning, social and emotional activities, and physical health. Pre-kindergarten provides foundational knowledge of literacy, numeracy, science, social science, and technology. Students are encouraged to explore their world through both visual and performing arts. RAS offers both three-year-old and four-year-old pre-kindergarten programs.

Elementary School (Age 5-9)
 
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 10-13)
 
Students in Grades 5 through 8 learn under the guidance of highly qualified international teachers who specialize in both their subject matter and the developmental needs of this age group. Students are challenged to acquire the RAS Learner Outcomes utilizing their own MacBook laptops as they move to subject specific classrooms. Core subjects of Language Arts and Mathematics are instructed daily, while Science and Social Studies receive secondary focus. Visual Arts, Music, Physical Education and an Additional Language are instructed by specialist teachers to provide students multiple venues for exploring their creativity, individual growth, and unique strengths.

High School (Age 14-18)
 
High School students, Grades 9-12, earn a minimum of 25 credits to be awarded a US High School Diploma at the end of Grade 12. The most motivated students may choose to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses which provide US University level study coursework in the final two years of high school. AP courses, with a passing mark on an external College Board Exam, are eligible for university transfer credit in the USA and Canada and are eligible admissions criteria to universities around the world. High School students learn under the guidance of highly qualified international teachers who specialize in their subject matter and are trained in the social and emotional developmental needs of older teens. Technology is integrated throughout all subject areas which are instructed with equal weight and a focus on acquisition of the RAS Learner Outcomes.
