Dear Students and Parents/Guardians of Rockland International School,
Welcome to the RIS family! I hope you are ready to experience an amazing school year. Our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. At RIS, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, and community and we invite you to be an active part of helping students to achieve their full potential.
We believe that each and every student has a gift to share, and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help all RIS students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. RIS aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in school, career, relationships, and life-long learning.
To help your student be successful in school, help them understand what is required of them to be a good learner inside and outside of the classroom. Talk about qualities and learning behaviors such as: taking positive risks, viewing errors as opportunities, working to recover from a mistake, giving and receiving feedback, asking questions, collaborating with peers, setting goals, planning with a purpose, and tracking their own progress.
Students need both high challenge and high support to grow as learners, and we look forward to help students maximizing their growth at RIS. Please be our partners in this work. Let us know how we can help. We look forward to working with families to accomplish great things for our students!
