Whether they are joining an unfamiliar activity, playing an instrument for the first time or trying out for a sports team, students benefit from exploring new interests.
To encourage all students to push beyond their limits, the NIST Activities Programme offers more than 300 activities throughout the year across eight areas: academics, creative arts, enrichment, music, performing arts, service, sports and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
The diversity of activities encourages students to excel by challenging themselves, and growing both as individuals and as a part of a community. Equally important, experiencing these new challenges empowers them to develop a growth mindset, view failure as an important part of learning and become more resilient.
Through activities, students learn that success in life is not measured only by awards or trophies, but also through our own growth and the positive impact we have on others.
For our older students, NIST offers the IB Middle Years and Diploma Programmes, as well as the Global Citizen Diploma and International Award.
Each year our students excel in IB exams, posting scores well above the global average.
