1. How long is the school day?
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: school starts at 8:20am and ends at 3:30pm
Wednesday: school starts at 8:20am and ends at 2pm
2. How does my child get to and from school?
Some parents drive their children to school and others choose the school bus. Families must fully complete the application, and attach a google map. Bus service, if space is available, will commence 48 hours after receipt of complete application.
3. Does RAS have waiting lists?
Yes, as with many international schools around the world, demand can fluctuate and is often high. This means that, at the time you apply, our classes may be full. In these cases, we open a waiting list for the class concerned. The admissions officer will be happy to explain to you how we operate our waiting list at RAS.
4. Does RAS offer merit scholarships?
No, we are unable to offer any type of scholarships.
5. Is financial aid available towards the cost of tuition fees?
No, we are unable to offer financial aid. The only exception is when an RAS family is experiencing financial hardship and they have a child enrolled in Grades 11 or 12.
6. How long will I have to wait before I know that my child has been accepted to RAS?
We encourage families to apply as soon as they learn of their assignment to Rabat. The review of the complete applications received and assessments will take place in the spring (April/May). We will do our best to provide families with a decision by Mid-June. In some instances, we will not be able to provide final admissions decision until as late as August.
7. My child has specific learning needs. How do I know whether these will be met?
RAS has very limited learning support available. When a student’s special needs are known, the parents are required to provide all copies of all reports and evaluations related to the child’s diagnosis. The sooner you can let us have all the relevant information about your child, the sooner we will be able to let you know whether your child’s special education needs can be met within the context of the school.
