School Notes:

  • Elementary school:
  • We are the only K-5 school in California that offers a Russian and English curriculum.
  • Children spend about half of their time in Russian classes and other half in English classes.
  • They become skilled in advanced mathematics, science, social studies, art, music and physical education.
  • The Russian-American International School’s mission is to provide students with a strong bilingual program that will serve to build a solid academic and personal foundation for children in a multi-lingual and culturally diverse environment.
  •  We are very proud of the academic results of our students that include:
  •  -  98% of kids in Kindergarten read in Russian and English by the end of the year.
  •  -  100% of children read in both languages by the end of grade 1.
  •  -  By the end of the 3rd grade, kids do math at the 4-5th grade level.
  •  -  Our students score in the top 1% nationally on each of the three different standardized math tests. 
  • Middle School :
  • Our  Middle School was opened in September 2014. That was the beginning of a new Academy of Math and Science middle school. 
  • All subjects are held in English, taught by highly professional and experienced English-speaking teachers.
  • Russian is offered as a foreign language, 5 classes a week.
