Mission Statement


This school aims to provide a wonderful atmosphere built around friendship, genuine happiness and inspired empowerment. The creation of a stimulating, caring and positive environment is an important element in the vision of our school.

The children will share the responsibility in the educational process and to develop their own talents and abilities. The children will be encouraged, supported and inspired to reach their full potential.

The children will develop a respect for a healthy and purposeful life, rich in individuality, facing challenges with wisdom and perseverance. They will expand their international awareness and be reflective, caring and balanced in their outlook which will prepare them for a responsible role in a multicultural world.


We want our students to become caring and principled world citizens. We aim to reach this goal by stimulating their curiosity and developing their personal academic and social potential.

Our balanced and rigorous IB programmes enable our students to gain the skills, the breadth and depth of knowledge, and a positive attitude towards learning that will also prepare them for success in later life.

Rivers International School Arnhem (RISA) is a small and caring international community, which is able to draw on the resources of a larger partner school. We provide a stimulating learning environment and guide our students in an atmosphere of intercultural understanding and respect.
