A PLACE WHICH HELPS YOU REACH YOUR GOALS
At NIS, we believe that one of the best ways for students to strengthen their leadership skills, build character, gain experience, develop a global mind set and contribute to the school community is to take on formal leadership roles. We have created service opportunities through our house system, assembly system, student council system and global festivities that remind us of exemplary people and events that inspire us to be all and to do all. Students who assume leadership roles play a major part in keeping our school community fun, vibrant, healthy, safe and inclusive.
