RAS was envisioned by Raffles Education Corporation (REC) of Singapore to address the increasing demand for American Education in the region. REC contracted International School Services (ISS) out of Princeton, New Jersey to provide the American curriculum, instructional materials and international leadership and faculty for the creation and realization of RAS. Dr. Rob Mockrish, founding Superintendent of RAS brought more than 20 years of overseas school experience to the initial formation of RAS and subsequent accreditation by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). The 2015-16 School Year finds RAS with over 20 highly qualified international teachers, an Elementary Principal, a High School Counselor, an Assistant Middle/High School Principal and over 120 students from 16 nations. Our school currently serves students from Prekindergarten to Grade 11. The Master Plan for Raffles American School, Johor outlines the vision for a contemporary Pre- Kindergarten-Grade 12 school that will be unlike any that has preceded it in the region. Set amongst the lush rolling hills of Iskandar, Malaysia in Johor, the school is envisioned as a holistic learning environment where educational facilities, and athletic and performing arts spaces will comprise an open network that is seamlessly interwoven into the beautiful outdoor landscape. RAS will have a series of educational amenities, enhancing students’ experience. An indoor athletic complex will include a single and a double gymnasium, gymnastics, several free activity rooms, and a weight room. A fully equipped performing arts center will house two venues for student productions: a state-of-the-art black box theater and a 700 seat traditional performing arts theater. At the northern head of the school, a dramatically terraced library and media center will contain a digital media lab, a stacks area, as well as a variety of “reading room” spaces that will offer students inspiring atmospheres in which to study, research and collaborate. At the southern end of the library, a 50 person planetarium will give teachers an immersive educational tool with which to expand on classroom lessons. A series of outdoor courtyards, 6 acre undeveloped hill and160 sqm greenhouse will allow students to interact with the natural environment for both academic and leisure pursuits.
