Age Cut-Off Date

 RIS AGE CutOff


Raha International School places students in age-appropriate grade levels in accordance with the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) regulations.

Families are encouraged to use the chart below to ensure that they are applying to the correct grade level, taking into account the differences that exist in the naming of grades or years around the world. (As an example, Year 2 in the British Curriculum is equivalent to Grade 1 in the IB curriculum at RIS although both programmes are for 6-year-olds who turn 7 during the school year). Raha employs a strict age cut-off for EY1-Grade 1. After Grade 1, children may be admitted according to their transfer certificate
