INTERNATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL
Message from the Head of School-ISK
It gives me great pleasure to welcome all students and parents to RAK Academy Khuzam – Secondary.
RAK Academy provides a nurturing, support-based learning environment that encourages all students to reach their full potential, placing an emphasis on developing all the skills needed to be successful in the post-secondary world.
Our student-centric approach is focal to everything we do here, and no decision is taken unless it positively benefits our students and their development. The holistic development of attributes including resilience, a growth mindset, respect and compassion as well as a lifelong thirst for learning all form part of what the team here at RAK Academy instills in our students. Our school has a rich history dating back to 1975 and has evolved into a diverse and vibrant community. This diversity allows our students to build an appreciation of world cultures and become true global citizens.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that not only caters for all student interests and aspirations, but also ensures that students are able to make well-informed decisions regarding their post-secondary futures.
Our Grade 6 to 8 students follow a skills-based, vertically aligned curriculum based on the British National curriculum. At Grade 9 and 10, IGCSE subject offerings and combinations cater for all student needs across different areas of study, giving them every opportunity to succeed. As our student’s progress into Key Stage 5 (Grade 11 and 12), we are uniquely positioned to provide them with a choice of two pathways, these being International A Levels and the IB Diploma Programme.
The provision on offer at RAK Academy also stretches beyond the classroom as our students are given the opportunity to participate in our Extra Curricular Activity and Enrichment offerings that span across academic, sporting, cultural and performing arts spheres.
It is an extremely exciting time to be a part of our school community as we grow from strength to strength and continue to be the secondary school of choice in Ras Al Khaimah.
