RIS is accredited by both CIS and WASC, and is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. While these agencies have certain guidelines and policies, ultimately it is the school, which must develop the appropriate curriculum for both the needs of our community and the standards of those organizations, and this is typical of most international schools around the world. We offer the IB PYP Curriculum (Primary Years Programme) from the Grade 1 to Grade 5, IB MYP Curriculum (Middle Years Programme) in Grades 6 – 8.
