Rivers International School Arnhem is a school where students from different cultures form a community. They are challenged academically as well as socially, so they leave us ready for the wider world. We provide a stimulating, caring and safe learning environment for ages 2,5 to 18. We encourage, support and inspire our pupils to explore the worlds of their school, classroom, and community.
Our core values are
Develop your integrity and creativity in a safe international community as a basis to explore your worlds.
Our core values have the following connotation
I am an individual: where I am from, what my talents are, and who I want to become. I want to show you what I have learned and what I can do. Teach me how to ask questions, rather than giving me the answers.
I am a communicator, open-minded and caring. I believe in myself and I believe in you. I will take time to listen to you and respect your point of view. We can learn a lot from each other. We won’t always agree, but we don’t have to, as long as we stay open-minded and connected.
I am a caring and principled world citizen with an appetite for new challenges. Feed my curiosity, tap into my creativity and let me dream. Give me a safe environment, and I will be an inquirer and a risk-taker. Challenge me to expand my limits. Help me to reach my potential, socially and academically. I need knowledge, empathy and ambition, both now and in the future. Complex issues require innovative solutions, from myself and others.
Together, we form a community. This bond will aid us in a world where intercultural understanding offers solutions to global issues. I feel responsibility for my surroundings and environment, globally and locally. I see present and future issues, not as problems but as opportunities. I will learn how to investigate, develop skills, and combine specialist knowledge from a variety of subject areas. As independent and life-long learners, we can all serve society, together.
