NIST has a well-resourced English as an Additional Language (EAL) department, and in the elementary school we are able to accept beginner English language learners. Because of the curricular demands in the secondary school, we are able to support intermediate and advanced level English language learners.
English is the language of instruction in all year levels and it is important that students are able to successfully access the curriculum within our available EAL support resources. We may therefore limit the number of EAL students in each year level to ensure they have access to needed services and that strong English language standards are maintained throughout the school. However, in line with our values and philosophy, we do not charge any additional fees for this support.
