Teaching approach of the school

The primary educational goal of NISS Schools is to prepare students for professional success in the global community. We believe that students must be culturally literate and competent problem-solvers. Our High School curriculum emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills and intercultural learning within a college preparatory academic framework. We also recognize the benefits of non-formal learning that students gain from their daily interactions.

The school values individualized learning. Our teacher to student ratio ranges from 1:6 to 1:25. Small classes create an environment for personal interaction between students and teachers, and provides the opportunity for students to explore topics of personal interest. Teachers are able to focus on the individual instructional needs of their students, particularly on needs to develop their English abilities.
