Who we are

The WellSpring School is a non-profit private American curriculum school licensed by the Emirate of RAK and the UAE Ministry of Education and managed with the assistance of WellSpring Educational Consultancy (WEC), an American educational services company based in Al Ain.  In cooperation with RAK Academy, the WellSpring School is leasing classroom space in the former PYP Building on the RAK Academy secondary campus for two years while WellSpring’s new campus is being built.

The school began classes on September 1, 2015, with grade levels from KG1 through Grade 6. An additional grade level will be added each year until the school reaches Grade 12.  The school is a true American school with American ownership, administration, teachers, and curricular materials.

What We Offer
A Different Kind of Education

The WellSpring School isn’t for everyone.  But if you want a school for your child that has strong academics in an atmosphere of caring and nurture, we want you to be part of our school family.

Academic Support

Some children struggle academically. We work hard to make them successful little by little.  One-on-one support and encouragement can make a difference.

A Heart for Special Needs Children

We can’t meet the needs of every child with special needs but we can impact as many as possible.  Many of our staff have special education backgrounds and are available to help as challenges develop.

A Truly American Education

From American owners to American administrators to American teachers to American curricular materials, we are truly an American school. Come experience the difference.

Teachers That Care

Our teachers love their students and invest in their lives. It’s not always easy, but consistent loving and firm discipline helps form character strengths that last a lifetime.

Communication with Parents

Breakdowns in communication with the home create unnecessary obstacles to student learning. Our staff works hard to communicate in a timely and clear manner.
