Vision Mission, Philosophy
A generation who will combine modern science, universal ethics, and disciplined work needed to contribute wisdom, compassion, and leadership to a global society, while being dedicated to traditional values.
Our mission is to equip students with the skills essential to achieve academic excellence and instill in them the moral values needed to become responsible individuals through the guidance of devoted role model educators.
Ronaki International School-Erbil (RISE) is acutely aware that we now live in a global society and our school has been founded in order to cater to students of all backgrounds, races, and cultures. In this way, children learn to belong to the family of the world, to love and respect each other’s differences and celebrate them. The wide-ranging curricular and extra-curricular activities ensure they have the opportunity to follow their desired path to appropriate secondary institutions. The purpose of our educational philosophy is to help students aim high in all aspects of learning while retaining their curiosity and creativity. They will learn to have empathy with others and reflect on their own values and the values of others. This will enable them to lead in businesses or universities worldwide while retaining their curiosity and creativity. This will enable them to lead and succeed in the career of their choice.
