Welcome to the Middle School
Here at NIS, the goal of our Middle School is to cultivate principled, courageous, creative thinkers who are equipped to prosper in an internationally-minded world. In grades 6-9, we recognize the unique needs of middle-level learners, and, as such, couple robust Advisory and Co-curricular opportunities with a rigorous academic programme aimed at inspiring and supporting students throughout this exciting stage. We aim to provide learning experiences in a wide variety of contexts that encourage our students to make connections to themselves, to other subject areas, to their host nation, and beyond.
Our Middle School curriculum is based on a combination of clearly defined Student Learning Outcomes and the inquiry-infused International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.Grade Level Overviews provide a detailed breakdown of what is studied at each grade level. These and other school documents can be viewed via the links below. All students in MYP are involved in Service Learning which raise awareness of community needs and builds confidence in their ability to bring about change.
