We are an inclusive learning community.
Inclusion is at the heart of who we are, as a school and as an international community. From Admissions to graduation and beyond, our commitment to inclusion is more than meeting the learning needs of every student - it’s about embracing diversity. It’s about belonging.
Inclusion in our school celebrates the talents and diversity of students and acknowledges every child should be empowered and successful in their learning. We believe that opportunities should exist for all our learners to grow and achieve. All students have the right to realise their full potential. This belief embodies our school’s Mission and helps drive our ongoing Strategy. NIS is proud to be an inclusive learning community and is committed to honoring inclusion through our approach to teaching and education every day.
Since crafting our Mission as an inclusive learning community, NIS has been on a journey. We accept students with mild to moderate support needs with our Admissions team always viewing applicants from the perspective of whether they can thrive at NIS. Our commitment to student learning needs is a crucial element for every one of our students to feel welcomed, valued, and accepted. We are proud to have neurodiverse graduates amongst our alumni.
Our Learning Support Services team is comprised of specialists who work throughout the school with the common goals of providing targeted support to students, working with families on individualized learning plans, and collaborating with colleagues on how best support all learners.
English Language Support
The English Language Learning team is comprised of specialists who work throughout our school to providing targeted support for English language learners. In Primary, ELL teachers are integrated into classrooms, supporting English acquisition within the context of the regular learning environment.
The NIS school Counselling programme is proactive in nature, focusing on the academic and social-emotional development of the whole child from Pre-K to Grade 12. Our University Counselling Programme focuses on the overall personal development and wellness of our students.
