Nahar International School (NIS) is a young school which uses its fresh perspective in dynamic and innovative ways. It aims at creating globally adept world citizens and leaders for the future. Students are encouraged to be participators in academics, sports, and performing arts through programs that are rigorous but not rigid.
The school campus is an eight-storey structure, located in an elegant neighbourhood within the busy city of Mumbai. It is equipped to offer education at international standards, providing SmartBoards and electronic methods of knowledge dissemination, fitted-out with well thought-out infrastructure such as modern workshops, German-design science labs, iMac computer studios, a vast digitized library, spacious conference rooms, a multi-purpose auditorium with a performance platform, and a large turf-based playground.
NIS inculcates a holistic and learning-centric way of life. It aims to endow students with the right attitude, attributes, skills and social traits to care for themselves, their immediate society and the community at large.
The NIS philosophy highlights nine attributes - Reverence, Responsibility, Empathy, Courage, Fairness, Perseverance, Resilience, Collaboration, and Initiative-taking. These values, being closely aligned to the IB learner profile, combine beautifully with traditional Indian values to instill in the entire NIS team an optimistic and constructive approach to making the world a better place and being responsible global citizens.
At NIS, CAS is a 'way of life'. Students across all age groups are active participants in CAS. Through our various Club Activities (Film Making, Photography, Carpentry, Cookery, Dance, Lawn Tennis, Archery, Football, Basketball, etc.) we offer our students numerous opportunities to engage themselves creatively and athletically.
Service, being an integral part of NIS, students are encouraged to actively engage themselves in service related projects. Such projects have included working with organizations such as Bookwallah (an NGO that helps set up libraries at orphanages). Not only did our Students extend their services at multiple levels: firstly, raising awareness about the NGO, then running a book collection campaign and finally organising a fundraiser to generate funds for the organisation's work. Students regularly volunteer at a nearby municipal school where they teach younger students every week, and design teaching aids for the faculty. A few NIS students have taken up the responsibility to teach spoken English to the support staff at NIS. Through the school’s tie-up with Rotaract, students are offered a larger platform to discuss social issues and serve the community, leading to improved social interaction.
An important aspect of the IBDP school year which engages DP students creatively is the DP Dramatic Production. It immerses the students in a 3 - 4 weeks engagement with theatre - understanding the nuances of acting, dialogue-delivery, use of stage space, costume creation and assembly, prop creation, use of sound and light and backstage coordination. During this process, the students become actors, learn to manage materials, space and time, work collaboratively, watch plays in a similar vein to the genre they're performing and overall, grow as individuals who have learnt to don multiple creative hats.
It is the constant endeavour of NIS, that through their learning, students see possibilities for consistent emotional, social and ethical development.
