Nibras International school is a very special school promoting amazing learning. I have chosen to be part of NIS because I am interested to promote a different kind of classroom, a different kind of educational approach. I believe the children can be the main participants in class, the ones who discover the knowledge, while the teachers channel their efforts in the right direction. I want the students to feel empowered and have control of the newly acquired information. I want them to strengthen their own characters and diversify their own personalities. When a student is confident, he or she can stand up and express an opinion in a considerate but determined way, support it with facts. This is what our society needs and we, as teachers, have to help our students build it. It is not only a school, a place for learning, but it is also a home in many ways. The administration, teachers, parents and students all have a connection and a bond that unites us. Not only are academic subjects taught, but focus is also placed on developing deep and meaningful relationships. The students use their intellects, talents and gifts to stretch themselves and become the best they can be. Most of all, Nibras International School is a warm and welcoming home where students feel safe and loved.

I have worked at NIS for nearly 3 years and there have been many changes over that time. However the one thing that has been constant, and got stronger is the caring supportive atmosphere created for the children in our care and the staff team who work together to provide this. On top of this I have seen a huge improvement in the physical layout of the school, an increase in standards expected of the children, and a move towards amazing learning across all subjects. This allows the students to develop into well rounded, empathetic and knowledgeable learners. I would recommend NIS to any parents looking for a school where their child will be valued and to any potential staff member looking to join a positive, supportive team.

NIS is a very special school, not only is it a school, it’s a place to learn, and can be seen as a home away from home. We not only teach academic subjects, we place a huge emphasis on developing deep and meaningful relationships too.Many memories are made at NIS, memories that are held and shared over a lifetime. Our students feel safe, respected and valued and this is highly visible through their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn and continually move forward in their learning journeys.Working as a teacher at NIS I am constantly encouraged to continue my own professional development which has developed my own skills and knowledge. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and a lifetime of experiences working for NIS.Overall NIS is an extremely enjoyable place to work, providing me with the opportunity to work in an international school encourages me to continue to learn and develop in many ways. This opportunity allows me to work closely with highly experienced and knowledgeable colleagues and has provided me with some amazing experiences.

Mathematics has always been an enticing subject to me. Its intrinsic objectivity, simplicity and beauty enthralled me from the very start. As a NIS math teacher, my experience is fully satisfied and enlightened. The NIS math department is most assuredly a group of highly qualified teachers who offer a help and support to students . There is no better feeling than to see the children succeed and know that we were a part of the success. As a teacher I am just one part of the equation. It’s the parents who have dedicated themselves to their child’s education that helps make us strong,as well as our amazing students who are our main motivation to work harder.No matter what your grade is,in NIS there are different Knowledge,skills and understanding to be learned.Our focus is continuing to build the critical thinking and problem solving skills students need as they continue to develop their abstract thinking and to take into consideration individual mathematical ability and maturity levels, we offer multiple opportunities for continued acceleration.

NIS is a very special school. It is not only a school, a place for learning, but it is also a home in many ways. The administration, teachers, parents and students all have a connection and a bond that unites us – our strong urge to teach the whole child and develop a lifelong learner. Not only are academic subjects taught, but focus is also placed on developing deep and meaningful relationships. The students use their intellects, talents and gifts to stretch themselves and become the best they can be. Most of all, NIS is a warm and welcoming home where students feel safe and loved. As a first time year 1 teacher, transitioning from upper elementary and high school I felt extremely supported by the staff. Special thanks to SLT members Hannah, Brian and Jason. Oh! An I must not forget the Grade 1 team and Joseph of the IT team! THANK YOU! It feels great to be part of a group that takes meaningful steps towards turning our philosophy and values into action.

After spending 12 years at Nibras, it doesn’t only feel like a school it now feels like my second home. The environment here, at Nibras, is very friendly and positive. I believe that a nurturing and caring environment is exactly what all students need in a school, which is why I want to come to school every day. All my teachers are very supportive and are always there to help me, whether it is academically or emotionally. In every class, I am motivated to learn something new and to collaborate with my classmates to get work done. I come to Nibras everyday not only ready to learn, but ready to improve myself, my skills and to grow into a better version of myself.

My name is Mohammad Ben Hussain from Grade 11A. I transferred this school year from Dubai International Private School to NIS. I wanted to shift from IB curriculum to American Curriculum. My parents and I chose NIS because it offers American Curriculum and it is NEASC Accredited which will help my college applications in the USA when I go to University. NIS also offers Advanced Placement Program (AP courses) which will also benefit me for when I pursue University. I am very happy in my school because I can feel that my teachers only want the best for us and having teachers who are open-minded and very approachable who care for us make me feel like they are family to me.

My name is Zhasmin Gadou from Mr. Romiz’s class. I like going to school because I like learning and having fun at the same time. I did not finish school last year because we thought we will go back to our home country but when we stayed my parents still choose NIS to be my school. I also like seeing and greeting Mr. Mike in the morning every day at the gate.
