Ruamrudee International School (R.I.S.) is an international school located in Minburi, Bangkok Thailand. The original RIS, founded in 1957, was in Soi Ruamrudee, Ploenchit. The student population consists of 55% Thai, 8% Taiwanese, 25% Indians, 10% Koreans, and 2% Americans. The remaining student population are European/Scandinavian whom attend the Swiss Section, which is situated on the right side of the school campus. Redeemer International School of Thailand (R.I.S.T.) is the sister-school to R.I.S. and was completed in year 2003. R.I.S.T. accepts all students who are determined to develop their English skills. [1]

Academic standards are extremely high - the school offers APs and the IB Diploma to Juniors and Seniors. RIS follows the American Curriculum. The top 10 graduating seniors usually receive admission to Ivy League schools as well as elite liberal arts colleges; scholarships are often a part of the admissions package. Many of the faculty are expatriates from the US, the UK, Canada and Australia. Foreign language courses are taught by faculty who are natives of the countries where the language is spoken. Classes are often small and teachers know students by name. Faculty also chair clubs and chaperoned field trips. [1]

The RIS uniforms follow that of a typical Catholic school - a selection of white short-sleeved polos OR long buttoned dress shirts with the RIS logo embroidered on the pocket, paired with knee length dark blue plaided skirts for girls and long/short, dark blue trousers for boys. Students are free to wear any form of footwear, including sneakers and pumps, that do not expose the toe. PE uniform colors include red, blue, yellow, and green. You can also bring your own clothes for PE. Tucking in the shirts are optional. "No uniform day" typically occurs during the last Friday of every month, presenting a prime opportunity for students to turn RIS's hallways into a fashion parade. "Cultural Week" occurs onces a semester and students wear their traditional costumes. "Spirit Week" allows students to dress according to the theme chosen. [1]

Ruamrudee International School is a multinational school that accepts all nationalities and races. Most Thai students in the school are descendants of Thailand's elite and upper class families. [1]
