Learning Ladders are pleased to announce their partnership with RAK Academy, a group of five international schools in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.
This recognition as a Learning Ladders ‘World Class Assessment’ member highlights RAK Academy’s commitment to student-centred teaching, learning and assessment tools specifically designed to help teachers to teach, parents to support and children to learn.
Founded nearly half a century ago, RAK Academy has built a reputation as the pre-eminent provider of K-12 education in the emirate. Their schools offer a broad and balanced education, including International Baccalaureate and British curriculum options, to local and international children aged 3 to 18.
RAK Academies say: “Parental involvement has a significant impact on academic achievement. As such, all parents at RAK Academy have access to Learning Ladders’ bank of teacher-written articles to support learning outside the classroom. You [our parents] can also find easily digestible information about your child’s learning objectives, evidence in portfolios, homework, and termly or end of year reports.”
Matt Koster-Marcon, CEO of Learning Ladders, says: “By becoming an official Learning Ladders Member School, RAK Academy is demonstrating that they make parental engagement and high-quality assessment a priority.
“Research has shown that involving parents and carers in a child’s education has a huge impact on outcomes. We support schools and parents to close learning gaps as part of our mission to help children learn more and learn better. We’re delighted that RAK Academy is joining as part of this mission too.”
