Family Handbook
But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
Whose confidence is in Him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
That sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
Its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
And never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8
June 2018
Dear Reader,
It is a pleasure to introduce you to Rain Forest International School.
Whether you are reading this handbook as a prospective family or as one
already enrolled, I hope that you will find the information helpful. The Family
Handbook is designed to anticipate some of your questions and give you a basic
understanding of the school. If more information is desired, please inquire at
the school office, or look on the school website (www.rfis.org).
RFIS is an international Christian school with an international
curriculum, teaching staff, and student body. All of our courses are taught from
the perspective of a Christian world view. At RFIS students have the
opportunity to relate socially to students from cultures different from their own;
several languages are heard being spoken as students pass between classes;
and students expand their thinking by looking at concepts and values from more
than one point of
view. Students are challenged academically, but I believe they also experience
the encouragement and support of caring teachers and the friendship of other
international students.
It is my desire that you will sense the presence of Jesus Christ in every
aspect of school life. Should you choose to study at RFIS, you will be spiritually
challenged and I trust that you will be drawn to a deep personal relationship
with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.
