Student Life

The mission of Rogers International School is  to create a diverse school community of  lifelong learners through an engaging and  challenging program that fosters a culture of  caring, collaboration, action learning, and  responsibility for the environment. 

Rogers International School is a "six to-six" interdistrict magnet school  with before and after school  programs beginning at 6:00am and  ending at 6:00pm. Since 2002, Rogers has implemented the  International Baccalaureate program. With  its inception, RIS staff has participated in  extensive professional development related  to the IB philosophy, curriculum, and  practices. Within the philosophy of the IB,  RIS focuses on a learner’s “stage, not age”  which is reinforced through levels of support  and enrichment in all subject areas  including: Virtual High School for 8th  graders, Algebra I & Geometry, an extensive  performing arts program, the IB Design Program including a Makerspace & Video Production Studio, Language  Acquisition of Spanish and/or Mandarin  beginning in Kindergarten, and innovative technology with 1:1 devices in  grades K-8. 

RIS is united by a common language  centering on the IB Learner Profile and a student-centered inquiry approach. Our  entire school community embraces and  embodies the IB Learner Profile-inquirers,  knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators,  principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers,  balanced, and reflective. We strive for our  students to be successful global citizens who exhibit the RIS motto, “A high tide raises all  boats.”
