As part of Taaleem’s strategy of continuous improvement and self-evaluation, Taaleem requires each school to pursue accreditation from an independent accreditation body of institutions and academic specialists.
Accreditation is the process used to ensure that schools meet and maintain international standards of quality and integrity regarding academics, administration and related services.
All Taaleem schools apply to become accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), and some schools will also attain authorization and accreditation from other institutions.
Raha International School is accredited by the Council of International School (CIS) and the International Baccalaureate (IB). Raha was the first school in Abu Dhabi to receive full authorization to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP – currently Gardens Campus only).
