NIS requires each student to submit a health report (“Admissions Health Form”), to be completed by the parents and submitted together with other admissions materials. Having adequate information about your child is crucial to our ability to provide a supportive environment, and we rely on parents to provide all of the information requested on the form. NIS does not require a physical check-up, but strongly suggests that families coming from abroad invest in a full physical check-up prior to departure and to submit that information to the school as well. A form to present to medical professionals is available from the school. NIS has adopted recommendations by the World Health Organization, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Center for Disease Control in determining a list of suggested immunizations. As with other medical issues, it is important that families keep records of immunizations and know what is recommended for specific countries while traveling. The list of suggested immunization is on the NIS Admissions Health Form. If a student has NOT been immunized for any of those on the list, we ask parents to provide further information and/or explanations. The school may place restrictions on attendance and non-immunized students may be excluded from the NIS campus for an extended period of time if deemed necessary by the administration.
