"Every Learner A Leader"

Mrs. Gihan Holayel -- School Principal


Riada American School, a leading institution of education, opened on its present site, a distinctive, architect-designed group of buildings, in 2005. Located in a central, peaceful part of Alexandria, the school provides a safe and environment for nearly five hundred students every year. In architecture and design, the School is modern and purpose built. RAS offers the American curriculum for grades K-12. 

RAS is accredited by the Egyptian Ministry of Education as a co-educational, university/college preparatory school, which adheres to the American curriculum and grants the American High School Diploma. Additionally, RAS is also accredited by AdvancED. 

RAS firmly believes that small class size is highly conductive to learning. Small class size allows the teacher the opportunity to address individual academic needs, and to tailor teaching to each individual student's learning style. RAS believes in self-renewal and searching out best practices so that our students may participate in a rich, educational experience. Our students, in turn, are active, intelligent and creative learners. These positive attitudes unite us across all levels at RAS.

Our parents are our partners in the education of their children. Parents volunteer in classrooms, are active in the Parent Teacher Organization, and lend their voices to our students’ education. We invite and encourage parents to use our website to stay well informed about the activities and learning experiences at RAS.
