WELCOME FROM THE EXECUTIVE PRINCIPAL
On behalf of all teachers, students and parents, I would like to extend to you a sincere welcome to Ras Al Khaimah Academy website. As a potential new parent or student to the school, I extend to you a particularly warm welcome on visiting our international community here at RAK Academy.
Most good schools share certain basic aims: to nourish individual ability within a responsible community and to encourage academic success, physical health, moral stability and imaginative alertness. Yet every school is unique in its emphases. With almost 2,800 students on both our campuses from over 65 nationalities and staff members from many national backgrounds, we feel that the Ras Al Khaimah Academy provides an ideal setting in which children can learn, grow and develop into the kind of responsible and responsive self-starters, which the new millennium is seeking.
Founded in 1975 and established under the royal patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, we are one of the oldest and largest international schools in the country. However we remain firmly focused upon the individual progress and happiness of each and every one of our students. In our relentless pursuit of excellence it is our constant aim: to include, to challenge and to promote the success of all our children at RAK Academy within a friendly and purposeful learning environment.
It is my hope that you and your child will find the information contained in the pages of our website both useful and informative. Should you have further questions about any aspect of school life, please feel free to contact me or any member of my staff. My colleagues and I are all here to help you in every way we can. We are all delighted that you are considering our school for your family. My colleagues and I look forward to meeting and chatting with you further about all aspects of the school in general and your child in particular.
Until then, please accept my warmest good wishes for a happy and successful school year. Feel free to stop by and say hello. You will be made most welcome.
Mr Ross Hall
