Raffles American School


The Group’s participation in pre-tertiary education began with Raffles American School ("RAS") in EduCity@Iskandar, Malaysia. RAS offers an American K-12 curriculum, with Advanced Placement offerings in the high school, which will provide a schooling alternative to the local and expatriate communities in the region.


The curriculum at RAS is jointly developed by RAS Faculty and International Schools Services ("ISS"), New Jersey, USA, an established global company that has advanced the quality of international education for children across the world with its curriculum development, school management, supply sourcing, and recruitment. RAS prepares students for admission to top US and Western Universities. RAS is an accredited institution by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, USA ("WASC") through to June 2017.


RAS is open for grades one to eight at a temporary location in the Anjung neighbourhood centre in Nusajaya, Iskandar. The school’s permanent campus will be built on a sprawling 45-acre piece of land for Kindergarten through Grade 12, with full boarding capacity in the 2014-2015 school year.
