School profile


Raa Atoll Education Centre was opened to cater to the educational needs of the students of the atoll by the government of the Maldives. The Centre’s foundation was laid on 31st May 1981. It was inaugurated on 4th March 1983 by the then Honorable Minister of Education, Mr. Mohamed Zahir, and Honorable Minister for Health , Mr. Mohamed Musthafa Hussain.

The school initially began to function with a meager strength of 180 students and four teachers at the primary level. There were two sessions for classes of grade 1 and special classes 1, 2,3. Since its conception the school has gone through many stages of progress. Secondary education was introduced to school in the year 1993 and the first batch of students appeared at GCE O’level exam on January 1996. Higher secondary education was introduced at June 2005 and the first batch of students sat A’ level exam on June 2007.

Today, the school has classes from Grade 1- 12 with strength of over 430 students. Both, Commerce and Science streams are being offered to the secondary grade students who are being able to follow the same in spite of the courses being comparatively new to them. As a result of this, many students from other islands are virtually drawn to this school. The students, who appear for the GCE O Level and SSC examinations from this school, have been achieving good results.

In 2011, members of the School Board initiated a Smart Classroom Project at Raa Atoll Education Centre. The purpose of the project was to create a Technology Friendly Environment at the school. The project aimed to fix a multimedia projector in each and every classroom so that they could be used regularly during teaching. Some capacity building programmes were conducted for the teachers in order to increase their confidence in using technology while teaching. The Smart Classroom project cost a total of two hundred and fifty-five thousand Maldivian Rufiyaa. A large proportion of the contribution was donated by NGOs, parents and well-wishers of the island. The project was launched with a huge gathering in the school compound on the 2nd November 2011, which featured a number of exciting and colourful events.
