Vision and mission

Mission Statement


RIA is a private, independent, co-educational private school, educates students from Nursery to Grade XII. We pride ourselves on our rigorous core curriculum, nurturing environment, arts, technology and athletic programs. We cultivate the intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and creative growth of each child and develop a foundation that inspires excellence, builds character, and prepares each child for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
 

Philosophy  


RIA is to educate and develop each student academically, physically, artistically, socially, and emotionally. We believe that the formative elementary and middle school years of a child’s development are vital,  and we are privileged to engage the process during the period when an individual’s potential for learning is at its highest. Our goal is to discover each child’s potential and develop it as much as possible through a robust educational program, an excellent student-teacher ratio, attention to individual needs, teaching methods that vary according to instructional objectives, and an atmosphere of respect and love.

 Our academic program emphasizes the development of strong basic skills in communication: reading, writing, speaking, listening; reasoning: mathematics, science, technology; culture: history, art, music, drama, and foreign languages. We strive to develop our students’ abilities to think creatively and critically, and to become independent thinkers and effective problem solvers.

We are proud of our physical education and athletic programs, particularly our emphasis on skill development, teamwork, sportsmanship, and the importance of exercise in leading a healthy, productive life.
The major strength of our program resides in the faculty. Our teachers are chosen for their talent, experience, professionalism, dedication, and ability to promote a nurturing environment, imbued with respect.
We expect RIA school students to develop as principled individuals, who respect and enjoy learning, who seek to acquire skills necessary for those higher pursuits, and who care for others, their community, and the larger world.
