The ’21–’22 school year begins August 16. Read an update from the Head of School here.
The RIS motto Ad Astra means ‘to the stars.’ While we certainly encourage our students to reach for the stars academically, we also take pride in the personal and spiritual growth of our students… For over six decades, RIS has fostered amazing students and alumni. I am honored to be here and be part of its legacy.
Rev. Fr. Jittapol Plangklang, C.Ss.R.
At RIS, we live by the Principles of the Phoenix (PoPs): Head (knowledge) through our students’ academic talents… Hands (skills) through the never-ending opportunities for our students to take part in athletics, activities, and our extended day programs… Heart (values) through all the service-oriented club activities and countless other ways our students choose to give back to the community. There is truly an ideal track for just about every student at RIS, and I could not be more proud to be part of it!
Dr. Jim O’Malley
Head of School / High School Principal
RIS has a long and successful history of providing strong academic programs integrated within a moral and ethical framework. We inspire our students to aim at excellence, and while any school can build leaders, I believe RIS builds great leaders. In the spirit and the meaning of Ruamrudee, Union of Hearts, we work together to nurture intellectual development, foster compassion, and shape the lives of tomorrow’s leaders.
Rev. Fr. Apisit Kritsaralam, C.Ss.R.
Senior Advisor to the RIS Leadership Team
