We chose NCBIS because its curriculum is very practical and dynamic. It exposes children to the challenges that the children will face in the real world and encourages innovation and critical thinking. The exposure to ICT is very important as it prepares children to the fourth industrial revolution.

Moving to a new country can be stressful especially with young children and finding the right school is one of the factors that alleviate that anxiety. We viewed several schools and absolutely loved the enclosed Early Years section at NCBIS.  Every element is child-centered and focused on preschoolers feeling safe, playing and learning.

The reason I like NCBIS so much is that it’s a warm, caring school environment where we don’t think in obstacles or impossibilities. Anything is possible unless we find out we can’t do it. And by then at least we would have tried and gained experience for the next time to succeed.

I entered the first year of IBDP as a mostly scientific/mathematical oriented student. By studying different disciplines in depth, I grew and improved in disciplines I had previously thought I had extremely limited potential. For me, the IBDP @ NCBIS opened doors to different fields I wouldn't have considered before. Trying different activities through the CAS programme helped me gain clarity on what I am and am not passionate about.

I have been in NCBIS since Nursery, and I can honestly say that I am grateful for every moment spent in that school. NCBIS has prepared me in various ways for the real world because of its' excellence in preparation and its' staff, its' encouragement for diversity and constant encouragement for development. I also did the IB at NCBIS and it has allowed me to become very well-rounded because you don't only focus on one subject, instead, IB offers a multitude of options for different abilities to help you grow and offer a pathway to every individual.
