RISS Highlights

News and Events

"The trip was a lot of fun, with a nice mix of free time but we definitely didn’t sit still all the time. Especially the first hike where we had to find our own way was very nice. I think that the trip was a great experience for everyone involved and that in later years it should definitely be repeated. I think this is one of the best events in the school!"

The PTA organises lots of activities for parents, guardians, teachers and students. We would like to give you a sample of what we offer so please join us for our next meeting on Monday, November 5th. Read our newsletter here too!

Masters students from the Leiden University will come to RISS to teach our students ways to cope with stress and burnout. The presentation will also offer study tips, ways to avoid procrastination, figure out how we can build self-discipline and help us figure out clever ways to tackle our to-do lists! All RISS students are invited to join!

RISS Stories

Get to know our community

Ms. Duivenvoorden
Student-Teacher

I wanted to challenge myself, to experience what it is like to live and work in a country with a completely different culture and under very basic conditions.

Ms. Angelin Teixeira
Teacher

I ask myself the questions: What can I do better to make physics more understandable, what can I do for the students to get the best out of them and surprise them with their own knowledge and capabilities?

RISS is a small but fast growing school with small classes and a tight knit community within a dynamic international city.

Mr. Moreno
Teacher

My best experiences at the RISS so far were with students, being a witness of how much they can learn and improve with a little bit of help, which makes this job a very gratifying one.

Ms. Vartak-Mhatre
Teacher

My biggest motivation comes from my students who make working at RISS so much fun. Our priority is to enable our students to recognise and develop their strengths and help them to become independent learners.
