Curriculum

Ruamrudee International School’s core curriculum, based on the American Education Reaches Out (AERO) standards (including NGSS for science, NCAS for the arts, the SHAPE standards for PE, and the ACTFL standards for languages), is designed for curriculum consistency from Kindergarten through grade 12, with each grade level offering authentic and challenging learning experiences. 

At RIS, students are nurtured to develop skills that emphasize intercultural understanding, critical thinking, communication, self-management, research, and collaboration to help them be successful for life beyond RIS. RIS is also one of only a handful of schools in Southeast Asia to offer both Advanced Placement (AP) classes and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program. 

RIS promotes the use of technology resources and innovative approaches to nurture students’ development during instructional and extracurricular activities. While technology is considered an essential resource, RIS fosters a sense of responsibility for its use in students’ lives. Innovation markers enable students to identify the purposes behind the technology and strategies they use to navigate through their learning and the distractions of daily life.

The appropriate use of technology is further defined in RIS’ Responsible Use Policy, also known as RIS-CARES. This unique policy fosters constructive conversations with students and parents at each section, grade level, and in each class, helping families negotiate and practice digital health. RIS prides itself in nurturing students who have a concrete understanding of how to use technology resources and innovative tools in creative ways to contribute unique, long-lasting solutions for their own communities and the world at large.
