Message From Chairperson
"Our vision for the children is to develop new learning skills, driven by our credo, 'knowledge is light', and help them overcome the stress of competition. We will strive to follow the teachings of our vedic ancestors, who have inspired us to use knowledge as the passage from darkness to light.
"The primary goal of the school is to create a balanced atmosphere for learning, discipline and development of character. This will inspire the children to take a quantum leap when it comes to facing the challenges of the present and the future.
"With this, we intend to usher our children onto the path of learning eternal values.

Message from the Principal
Welcome to RBK International Academy which is deeply rooted in the eastern suburbs of Mumbai and successfully running into its tenth year. Success to us is the achievement of desired visions and planning goals.
At RBKIA we believe in helping all within the community to become caring, contributing, productive and responsible citizens. Our motto "reaching beyond knowledge", resonates in students. This in turn manifests not only to set high academic standards for themselves but also to pursue their passion. Multilinguism, cross-culture exposure and international mindedness has been to the heart of every RBKite and has helped them blossom into open minded students, thus creating a learning environment of trust and respect.
Following are some useful insights into the possibilities that exist for your children in this wonderful school:
We are an authorized International Baccalaureate School and offer the IB Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. In addition we also offer the IGCSE in Grades 9 and 10. Our students have graduated with results that have allowed them to seek admission in renowned Universities all around the globe.
RBKites who have grown and are growing with a blanket of the learner profiles, who have the ability to solve problems by being critical thinkers, who enhance their self management skills, who reflect on local and global issues, who develop into global citizens, are ready to fly and make a positive impact in the world.
To experience the true spirit of the school and a sense of belongingness, we would be more than happy for you to visit us.

Message from the Vice Principal
Welcome and greetings of the day from RBK International Academy. As you go through the pages on the website here, you will get the gist of our Vision and our Mission statement. At RBKIA, we make every effort to inculcate and imbibe these in our day- to- day practices. We take pride in helping our students to becoming citizens of the world for the future, wherein they are equipped to assess situations and look for solutions based on traditional thought processes as well as 'Out of the Box' thinking.
As a school that follows the complete IB Curriculum across all the years, we take pride in our students being well equipped to implement their thoughts into actions which will be beneficial to all. Making students empathetic to society is entrenched as a part of their learning process.
Our Internationalism is evident in all aspects of school life from the curriculum, to the staff, to the students. We pride ourselves in training students for a world of tomorrow, based on techniques and technologies which may not even exist today.
We hope you get a better picture of our plans and practices through these pages. We are certain that visiting us by appointment would enhance your understanding of the processes at RBKIA. Welcome, and hoping for further association with each of you.

Thank you so much Team RBK for a wonderful Grandparents day! Not only did the kids have a blast performing on stage but the grandparents were ecstatic to watch the kids perform! Generally grandparents get to see videos of their grandkids so thank you for inviting them for a live performance. Kudos to the team for wonderfully managing the event.- Parent of Samarth Goradia (Nursery) - Grandparents Day
Kudos to RBK faculty for putting up such a delightful and heart warming function. We grandparents eagerly look forward to this day when we put our hair down and enjoy ourselves thoroughly. This year too the bar was raised by RBK team and they ensured that we revel in all the gaiety and fun. It's is indeed a very proud and emotional moment for us grandparents to see their beloved performing brilliantly on the stage and being pampered by your staff. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart. Would like to specially mention K2B teachers for all the effort they put in to make this show an enjoyable one and giving us personal attention while we were interacting with them in school.- Grandmother of Mihika Dave (K2B) - Grandparents Day
What a grand show! One can honestly say you all put a real grand show for the grandparents. Your last years show was remarkable but this year you all took it to another level alltogether. The kids of course were fantastic and all the hard work of the teachers showed in their singing and dancing. But one cannot help but appreciate the fabulous singers that you have in house. Mr Girish and Mrs Bhanu were great with their duos and Mr Raj with his solos. It brought a different colour to the entire show! Chhaya teacher is of course an absolute rock star to have brought even the unwilling ones to the dance floor!- Parent of Raaisha Moghay (K2A) - Grandparents Day
Hats off to you and your team, excellent concept and idea. This event was so thrilling for the kids, they were super excited and enjoyed every bit. The event was all about learning , encouraging the kids to read books, understand their favourite character and their prototypes/ nuances and know more about them and be like them. We as parents questioned our kids what they wanted to become and why and the answers were really amazing to listen and we realised the thought process of our kids to a certain extend. Such events are very encouraging, fun filled and involve a lot of learning. The kids are self motivated to read books which is so very rare these days in this digital world. All arrangements were well done and organised. Fantastic and a well thought event.- Parent of Rhea Salaskar (K2B) - Character Parade
