The key to empowering any mind is encouraging exploration and recognizing positive innovation. Academics at NIS-American are rooted in structure; standards, benchmarks, credit units and credit hours. These are the pillars that our talented teachers and Head of Departments, stand on when we mold the implementation of this structure and give it color, shape, sound and feeling. Our commanding drive is to maintain and continually enhance the student-centered classroom.
Through our interactive Learning Management System – LMS, students and parents/guardians have access to us and our full resource system 24/7 from anywhere in the world. We strive to raise our students with an understanding and appreciation of cultural awareness and tolerance. We also strive to raise them with a strong sense of self, courage, conviction and national belonging.
Our academic partnerships with other best-practice schools in Germany and Russia allow us to nurture a new generation of students; ones that are nationalistic cosmopolites believe, that knowledge is sought, and cannot be given. What we do give, at NIS-American, are equal and equitable opportunities for each student to come to school and explore, innovate, and succeed at meeting their potentials. We dare to change, we share our vision, and we care about our students.
