In the RaM School the following are fundamental:
* Education is a prerequisite for the development of an individual and society and, at the same time, also an initiator of it,
* The school must be ahead of time,
* Home has the main role in the development of a child, whereas the role of the school is to support home,
* Every child is talented, but, in which area must be found out. Discovering the child’s talent is closely connected with the teacher’s professionalism. The school accepts and supports individuality of every student.
* Learning is a deeply individual activity,
* Teaching is guiding the way: why, where and how to go,
* Development is the indicator of a student’s progress.
* The development of a child depends on the extent of creativity: as much as there is space for creativity, there is space for development,
* Prerequisites for creativity and the development, accompanying it, are order and the love of order.
The leadership of the RaM School, teachers and the entire workforce are guided by the following principles:
* The person to person communication principle. Mutual respect is a basis for communication at school, i.e. communication is based on person to person principle, characteristic of a democratic society.
* The principle of mutual enrichment. It is learning from one another and learning together.
* The principle of intellectuality. One can become educated only in a deeply intellectual, academic environment. The whole workforce of the RaM School is involved in continuous self development. Teachers are also involved in original creative work and research.
* The principle of environmental conservation. Great emphasis is laid on the protection of nature, on charity and on developing loyalty.
It is necessary to learn to think and analyse, to create and to study, if one hopes to succeed. It would be absolutely hopeless to start with the intention to acquire everything, which might be necessary in one’s future life. Our objectives are that the graduates of the RaM School:
* Would be ready for continuous, lifelong learning,
* Could understand world, European and Estonian history, culture, current problems and peoples’ different ways of life in different parts of the world. We consider especially essential the development of understanding and tolerance towards different ways of life, towards national, religious and individual peculiarities and necessities of other people. The teachers and the graduates of the RaM School should be ready to adjust their behaviour and activities according to different cultural and social traditions, at the same time maintaining their own identity and dignity.
* Would be ready to participate in cultural life both as consumers and creators; to look deeply into themselves, analyse their activities and motives, connections and relations with other people, their achievements and reasons for their failure,
* Would have a flexible way of thinking and would be capable of self criticism, could behave in different social situations and circumstances, would be capable of living in different roles, giving and fulfilling tasks, would be capable of setting up goals and choosing means for the creative solution of various problems,
* Would be ready to decide and take responsibility, could tolerate risks and failure without losing dignity, protect everything that there is to be protected, strengthen and ensure freedom, independence, home and homeland, nature, fight against injustice,
* Would realise the necessity of physical activity and would actively go in for sport.
Thus, the ideal is an educated, healthy, spiritually, mentally and physically balanced person, capable of thinking and feeling, with alert social nerve.
To summarise it can be said that the activities at our school are based on "three columns":
* Top quality and academic approach in everything,
* Individual approach
* Healthy attitude towards life
