Our Concept

The concept for the Rainbow International School is to challenge conventional education and prepare the students for a 21st century career, where every child will need to be prepared as a globally competent and competitive citizen.



RIS curriculum design is built on the cognitive, social situational, and experiential-based theories of learning. The combination of these three theories enable the needs of the whole student to be met, both academically and emotionally, through authentic learning experiences. For a student to be an effective global citizen, he/she must be able to logically interpret and utilize the intersection between people and community as a guide in decision making.

RIS is an affiliated member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the East Asia Regional Council for Overseas Schools (EARCOS), and the Korea Council of Overseas Schools (KORCOS).


Learning Definition

RIS believes learning can be facilitated within or beyond the four walls of the classroom. It is the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and understanding of promoting creativity, curiosity, and awareness of the self, allowing the preparation for being an actively engaged individual in a broader global community. Learning is for everyone. 


At Rainbow International School internationalism is a mindset which is nurtured, embraced, and practiced. We are all citizens of humanity; we are one family, under one rainbow. We work together toward a common goal, an understanding and celebration of diversity. It is our mutual responsibility to be empathetic and altruistic global citizens willing to take action. This belief is embraced with our school, homes, and RIS community.
