Nibras is amazing for us! When we moved from Brazil to Dubai, Geovanna spoke little English. We talked to the school about it and got great support from them. In just months, Geovanna was already speaking English and could communicate by herself. She joined Nibras at KG2, and today she is in Grade 3. Her English gets better every day. Nibras has a team of excellent professionals, with great teachers who captivated our daughter ever since. Teaching quality is very good, and we see this through the development of our daughter. She excelled in French, Arabic, and English. This is enormous satisfaction and pride for us because we know that she achieved it by her merit and effort, and through the professionals that Nibras has. We can only thank Nibras for everything.

We started our journey with NIS in the last term of KG2 for my elder son. He was in a CBSC curriculum school till then. We have witnessed an amazing transformation in him since then; in his studies and in him as a person. The school's best feature is the open culture it has towards parent - teacher interaction. Because of this we received timely updates on areas that needed our attention. The teachers and curriculum supports independent thinking, and overall development of the child. We did not have to think twice when looking for a school for our second child!

Both of my children are happy with Nibras, and that's what matters the most. I can see they are eagerly going to school to meet their teachers, and proudly present their drawings and tests. It's reassuring to see teachers' dedication to the children. They adapt to every child's needs and try their best to keep us informed about their progress and potentials. This year has been very challenging. Online learning was something new and we all struggled with it, but I really appreciate the effort I have seen on the school's side. Besides technical issues, most of the learning was very well structured, and clear. Teachers adapted very quickly, and the school was understanding and supportive.Most importantly, I see my children progressing. My son is amazing in Arabic and I'm sure he will soon start to teach me, while my daughter's English improves daily.

Nibras has exceeded our expectations! We enrolled our son Zach from Grade 2 at Nibras. Zach used to study at an IB school, so we were concerned about the transition. The dedicated teachers at Nibras made his transition smooth. We are so happy with Zach's ability to think critically, which is improving daily. He is engaged and always happy to go to school. Nibras, being an American curriculum school, has a strong emphasis on an all-rounded education, so we noticed that Zach's strong interest in sports and arts is well supported. The diversity of the student body is also a big plus at Nibras. We would highly recommend Nibras to any parent looking for a great school that supports every child equally.

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. 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 an 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 Zhasminfrom. 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.
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.

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.

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. 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.

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.
