International Primary School Khuzam

Message From Head of IPK

Thank you for choosing RAK Academy to educate your son/daughter. Our vision at RAK Academy is to provide ‘Learning Excellence with a Community Heart.’ We have chosen to meet this vision by adopting the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). The Academy Guiding Statements and IB PYP curriculum framework provides a national and international approach to learning, enabling students to meet their potential and future aspirations. 

IB PYP students study a research-based international curriculum with an emphasis on both academic achievement and students’ personal development that accommodates: 

  • local traditions and global events, promoting intercultural understandings; 

  • an inquiry and critical thinking approach studying knowledge in multiple integrated subjects; 

  • two world languages and cultures – English and Arabic; 

  • a caring, safe, and secure setting to develop social behaviour and emotional resilience. 


In addition to the mainstream programme we encourage all students to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as art, music, sports, community action, and leadership opportunities to capture their interests and passions. 

Our mission is to challenge all learners to succeed. As the world changes and faces globalisation, we pride ourselves in preparing students to become adaptable enquirers, multilingual responsible global citizens, knowledgeable and caring lifelong learners fully prepared to emerge into positions of great worth to society. 

Please review our school website information, how it operates, curriculum model, what events occur, and how we all work together to make IPK a warm and welcoming learning environment. Feel free to contact the school or visit us to see our education on offer. 


Thank you again.
