“It’s an amazing feeling to feel excited to walk into work, to want to strive to have the best day possible, but also to know that the people you work for are supporting you all the way. To have the sense that the school leaders fundamentally believe in and will actualize the school’s vision and promote an environment of improvement and development that enables me and all staff to fulfill our potential.” (Rachel Dunn, teacher).
We are passionate about teaching and learning
Teaching and learning at NIA is an innovative, process-driven, and collaborative experience that meets the needs of all students. Through concept-based learning, driven by “big ideas,” NIA teachers inspire and engage students, facilitating and personalising each learning experience. Opportunities are provided for students to drive lessons through their curiosity, agency, and choice. This is supported by the provision of transformative learning and teaching spaces where students can take ownership of their learning; they can move around freely, apply themselves and connect with a diverse group of peers.
We offer a comprehensive curriculum
NIA offers a standards-aligned integrated curriculum that incorporates cutting-edge teaching concepts such as PBL and design thinking, with a theme-based, interdisciplinary teaching approach. Students build upon and improve their comprehensive capability and academic ability through immersion in bilingual learning. The NIA curriculum boasts holistic education which emphasizes the wholeness and relevance of knowledge while building basic skill sets. By stimulating students’ interests, they are enabled to inquire with the help of skills training, integration of different subjects and social practice.
