Our textbooks are updated yearly and we adopt to the changing world by doing research every year to get the best education for your child.

At NIVA we believe in individual strengths and for that reason there is no single skill set that outweighs another. Grouping is randomized to cater to our diverse student body and to allow their individual strengths to shine.

We also emphasize on Leadership and Individual quality traits to help the student succeed by using their individualized strengths.
