I am proud to be a member of the Ruamrudee International School - Ratchapruek community.  

I have had the pleasure and honor of working in or consulting with many schools throughout the world, and there is no school that outshines the work that we do here at Ruamrudee.

As the Head of School at the Ratchapruek Campus, where we serve students from ages 2 through Grade 6*, there are so many aspects of the RIS education that I am always delighted to share with parents and other visitors.  From the exceptional quality of our educational programs, our highly skilled teachers, the leadership role that RIS takes in regards to Professional Development for teachers throughout the world of International Education, or our focus on rigorous and global education for each and every student no matter their family background or prior educational experiences, perhaps  most important is the fact that RIS is a diverse and inclusive community focused upon teaching our students to be deep and creative thinkers as they develop into the leaders of tomorrow.

I am confident and proud of the work that our teachers do each and every day to support the success of our students.  Students that not only succeed in the classroom, but who succeed in athletics, the arts, coding and robotics, languages, and so much more.  You might assume that is the case at any school - and it should be. However, at RIS, I believe that it happens more consistently and at much earlier ages, with far greater success and joy.  My own daughter is a RIS student, so I have witnessed firsthand not only as an educator, but as a parent, the way that our students' evolve and develop their thinking and leadership skills.   

Come visit our school and see for yourself what makes the RIS - Ratchapruek community a place for all students to flourish and succeed.
