Opportunity. Passion. Inclusivity.

NIS offers a wide range of activities and experiences for our youngest in Pre-K to our oldest in Grade 12 with the goal of providing them with opportunities outside the classroom to achieve personal excellence, develop creative thinking, and promote international mindedness.

Activities are an integral part of the overall education process at NIS. 

In a safe learning and playing environment, students explore their passions and can develop leadership skills and camaraderie while exhibiting teamwork, respect and commitment. The activities we offer are as diverse as our community. They vary from year to year based on Student Voice and Student Choice, as well as teacher passion and expertise.
