Rumeli International School – Istanbul (RIS-Istanbul) was established in 2016 in the beautiful city of Istanbul- The bridge between Europe & Asia. It is a leading international school that caters to students from all around the globe from K-12. The philosophy of RIS rests under preparing our students to become contributing and responsible citizens in an evolving multicultural society.
We hold pride in instilling in our students a sense of spirit of culture, flexibility, international understanding, creativity, respect, and appreciation for their heritage and environment. We navigate towards an environment of equality amongst all humans regardless of religion, ethnic origin, culture and gender, and deal with each other with mutual respect and compassion. We acknowledge that each student is a unique individual to be challenged, thereby achieving his or her personal potential, and experiencing the opportunity to succeed. In light of a rapidly evolving world, we believe it is necessary to prepare our students to be leaders, ready to meet the challenges of technology, global changes and peace building. Thus, it is the school’s mission to direct the energy of our youth into a creative force; therefore, shaping their characters into mature, healthy, independent, well rounded, and conscientious members of the community capable of critical thinking and problem solving.
