Welcome to Riffa Views International School!
RVIS is a vibrant and welcoming community that proudly refers to itself as a “school on the move.” From the warmth embodied by the staff, to our engaging classrooms, to the robust sharing of learning online, RVIS inspires innovation and compassion with its myriad of programs and passionate commitment of staff, parents and students. We are “on the move,” but more importantly, we are a kind community.
This fall, RVIS celebrates ten years of learning. Founded on the principle of providing a global education grounded in local values, we are excited to celebrate our successes as we continue our journey of excellence in education. We are very pleased to share that in our recent 2018 Bahrain Quality Assurance (BQA) review, RVIS received the highest possible rating (Outstanding).
Some of the key principles from our philosophy include:
On the horizon this year...
- We present the theme of shared stories as we build connections across our community.
- We continue work on our strategic plan, which includes a review of our mission. This will be a community journey and we invite your participation.
- We will extend our Princeton Partnership, allowing for increased global connections for our students.
- Level 5 Bahrain will open this winter and offer innovative learning offerings for our community and professionals across the region.
- We will engage with the IB five-year review.
I am honored to be joining RVIS this year and look forward to learning more about the school and building connections across the community. My goal in my first year will be to ensure a positive leadership transition focused on building relationships and honoring our excellent past as we co-create the future of RVIS to deliver our mission, vision, and core values.
In addition to my leadership role, I am also a proud parent of two RVIS students and bring with me hope and excitement for the future that will emerge as my children grow. As a school, we not only get to know our children today, but envision the future global citizens they will become. Parents are equal stakeholders in this endeavor, and we are honored to partner with you on this exciting journey as we inspire joy, learning, and compassion in our children.
Thank you for trusting us with your wonderful children. You will find that they lie at the heart of all we do, surrounded by a circle of support so that they can experience joy today as they build their passions for tomorrow.
We look forward to a fantastic year. Our doors are always open and we look forward to learning alongside our community this year.
A very warm welcome!
