Grade 1-5 (Stage 2-6)

From Grades 1-5, Nada International School (NIS) follows the Cambridge Primary curriculum which focuses on equipping children with the core subject skills first, and then providing an exciting range of opportunities for them to apply their learning in an integrated context.

Alongside academic skills and knowledge, NIS emphasizes self-awareness, personal development, global awareness and sense of community to ensure that students become well rounded, community spirited and responsible young citizens.

NIS believes learning should be enhanced through a multitude of inspirational opportunities outside the classroom, such as day trips, residential visits and acts of service learning, which enable children to excel personally and academically.
