Dear Students and Parents:
I want to welcome you to Riada American School’s High School Department.
As a student at RAS, you will consistently be encouraged to achieve your highest potential. This message will come from teachers, counselors, administrators, and even fellow students. As a result, our goal is to ensure that the resources you need to reach individual goals and objectives are provided each day. However, a successful high school career requires discipline, organization, focus and commitment. As you grow from a young adolescent to a young adult, our expectations for you will grow as well. Keep in mind that our academic and career expectations are high.
At RAS, we
look forward to providing every student a rigorous academic schedule that fulfills individual needs and academic requirements. Whether you're new to RAS, a sophomore or junior, or a senior eager to graduate in the spring of 2021, we want you to know that our entire staff is prepared and willing to provide all the knowledge and experiences you will need for college opportunities, career opportunities, and anything else you desire in life. Know that when you leave RAS with your high school diploma, you will also leave knowing you possess the 21st Century skills that will lead you to becoming global citizens.
REACH is the acronym for the standards we have set for our students this year, in conjunction with our school's mission. We want all our students to be successful in their academic paths. REACH lays the foundation for our students to become organized and committed.
I look forward to the opportunity to personally meeting each of you. Please know that you are always welcome at RAS and in me, you also have an Assistant Principal with an open door policy. I want to hear your stories and get your perspectives of how we can work together to continue to make RAS a great institution of learning.
-Mrs. Lakshana Hassan
Assistant Principal for the High School Department
