Principal’s Welcome Message

Our clear aim and purpose is to provide the best teaching and learning environment in which all our students will achieve their very best academically, physically, and socially and who embrace Islamic values, Arabic traditions and culture.

Our motto ‘Share-Care-Empower-Inspire’ is fundamental to developing our students’ personalities as well as helping them build and improve their life-long learning skills. Empowering our students to become independent citizens with well- developed decision making, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills, contribute to creating leaders of the future. By working closely with all our parents we will together help to develop young people who will have all the skills they need to succeed in a rapidly changing, highly competitive global society to become future leaders.

Ras Al Khaimah American Academy /RAKAA is characterized by a very committed staff that has high aspirations for the students they teach and students themselves are eager to learn and participate in the life of the school. As Principal it is my hope to continue building upon the many successes of the school since its inauguration over twelve years ago and ensure we continue to provide the very best possible education for each and every student that attends the school.

A critical part of this will be the opportunity to continue working in partnership with our parents as I believe that parents are an integral part of the learning process and therefore we are committed to keeping you informed and involved in our school community.

Our goal is to create a safe, warm, embracing, and nurturing learning environment for our students. As such we give particular importance to our students overall well-being, happiness, and comfort. I am hugely excited by the prospect of continuing to lead the school and in particular working collaboratively with the support that I know you as parents will continue to give me.
Our School Improvement Plan for 2020_2021 focuses on the central question: How might we continue to improve school performance and student outcomes against global benchmarks, while equipping students with the 21st century skills required for online and offline participation in an uncertain world?
This year will present new opportunities and challenges. As we open the school year, we are thrilled to extend our offerings to include Middle School boys. We are also know that many of our students and their families will have experienced anxiety and trauma over the past few months. Rest assured we are here to support you in every way possible.
Our students, teachers, staff and parents are beginning this academic year more digitally savyy than ever. It is imperative that we, as a community, use these skills and build upon our progress over the past four years to ensure that the academic and social/emotional needs of all students are met, that students are even better prepared for the fast-changing global societies in which they will live, and that RAK AA is a place where students, staff, and families thrive.
Whilst this website will give you some idea as to the campus, structure and facilities of this young school, it is only by coming to visit that you will be able to grasp the very positive, purposeful, energetic and multi- cultural learning community which has developed here.
We look forward to welcoming our students back to school on August 30th – and to everything this year holds in store.
