It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Whether you are an existing pupil, parent or carer or a prospective parent, student or teacher, simply looking at what RWA has to offer, we hope you get a flavor of our school and find the information on our website useful.

Our mission is to empower students with a rigorous, holistic and international education for success in an ever-changing world. These words, though few in number, are powerful in intent. Every aspect of the student learning experience from the core curriculum to our co-curricular activities, to our faculty and facilities is intended to align with our guiding statements. In line with our school's guiding statements, we endorse an approach to educating the whole child as opposed to only the academic side.

RWA offers an inclusive international community in which each student is valued in their own right. Students are encouraged to develop their talents, to realise their potential and to strive to achieve their personal best in all they set out to do. The well-being of every student is at the heart of all we do. While we want our students to develop a genuine love for learning, we also want them to be resilient, optimistic and confident.

We want to develop young people who know how to form and sustain good relationships, take personal responsibility and make a positive contribution to society by living lives that are genuinely fulfilling.

RWA has highly qualified, experienced and passionate educators devoted to providing every student with a high quality creative, innovative and challenging education. We believe that educating the future global leaders, is a team approach which includes strong communication and partnerships with parents and the school community. The parent school partnership in promoting student learning and well-being has been commended and recognized as one of the strongest features of our school by all external inspection and visiting bodies like the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB), KHDA, the Council of International Schools (CIS) the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). When you join RWA you just don’t join a school, you join a community of like- minded people all working together to bring out the best in every child.
