Full Guiding Statement 


“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of ALLAH is the most righteous of you. Indeed, ALLAH is knowing and Acquainted” (Quran / Al- Hujraat 49:13).

At Al-Rayan International School our Ethos aspires to follow the Quranic injunctions to ensure that the children and community we serve are able to recognise differences as a blessing and something to benefit their learning positively. We encourage children to “know” each other by means of tolerance, respect, understanding, and gender equality, all through the exchange of knowledge in a global community.

In order to nurture a moral compass in the children, ARIS has implemented a Well-Being Programme that delivers a holistic approach to Physical, Moral, Social, Emotional, Mental and Cultural health.

“And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colours. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.” (Quran / Ar-Room 30:22)

It is the school environment that demonstrates that children at ARIS possess the tools to engage positively with the world at a local, national and global level. By having eight Golden rules of Responsibility, Respect, Passion, Mindfulness, Collaboration, Communication, Reflection, and Action to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and a more peaceful world.
