We believe that the best path to social inclusion is through educational inclusion, in which students, with or without difficulties are respectfully and equally served. Therefore, fostering a learning environment in which, inclusion is a key strategy, will develop learning to reach mutual acceptance and equal opportunities. Our students are challenged in their work to learn and to reach their full potential. We aim to have a full understanding of their abilities, so that we can modify and differentiate according to their needs.
Since 2014, NIS has graduated six classes of high school students. Graduates have been enrolled in national and international universities or vocational programs studying medicine, engineering, business administration, finance, aviation, dentistry, law, and human resources, among other areas of study.
As NIS continues facing challenges, it continues also, and at the same time, moving toward sustainable and consistent development, growth, and quality assurance. It keeps providing every possible support to children, parents, staff and community.
