Our Commitment to International Mindedness
International mindedness at NIS is underpinned by a set of skills, behaviors, and values. This allows us to embrace diverse opinions and cultures, adapt to shifting communities and take positive action to impact the world.
The diverse backgrounds and cultures of the NIS community provide authentic contexts to explore and reflect on identities and belonging. Recognizing that international mindedness is not naturally understood, and must be learned by the whole community, is an essential element to intercultural understanding.
The ability to accept various perspectives and interpretations with empathy, respect, and kindness inspires us to adapt as a community. Thus, the development of creative and critical thinking skills is visible in all areas of the curriculum and school operations.
