NIVA’s secondary curriculum teaches entrepreneurial, scientific, technological, and critical thinking skills. Biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and liberal arts courses are taught up to American Advanced Placement (AP) level. Our high school students are also primed for SAT and AP exams, project-based learning, and public speaking. Students also take charge of leading and running over 80% of the events held on campus. NIVA students are not only ready to enter university but are also ready to lead!
The Leadership Program at NIVA is full and enriching.
It prepares students for greater and unimaginable opportunities!
There is a special program that is unique to NIVA- the Leadership Program. Students start training as early as the elementary years by taking part in the Student Government. This trains them until they reach grade 12. By the time they reach their senior year, they have a whole class dedicated to leadership and is taught by well-trained teachers who employ different effective strategies to grow student leaders.
The seniors start the school year with a bonding camp and learn leadership skills. They are divided into groups and are given projects throughout the year. This offers practicum to hone and develop their skills to lead and organize programs/activities.
Reasons why we teach our students leadership skills at NIVA
- To improve relationships between students and teachers as well as to improve their social and communication skills,
- To prepare them to lead the community/country which needs more creative leaders,
- To promote self-awareness about the strengths and weaknesses for students to be guided early in life to build on their strengths and work on their weaknesses.
- To create more student opportunities when moving forward such as choosing a university with a portfolio on hand and solid experience that gives them a leverage during interviews.
- To develop a high level of confidence in students as they present their experiences and ideas to the world.
- To help students better understand older leaders before them as well as to develop more respect and maturity in grappling with life’s challenges,
- To train students to respect authority and relate with others regardless of status and race.
"Student leaders provide a clear direction to any activity by planning, organizing, and leading- thus, making any program a real success!"
AP courses prepare students to take the external AP examination administered by the US- based College Board. Sufficiently high AP scores may earn a student advanced standing or university credit at many US colleges. AP scores come solely from the AP exams written in May. Students may take up to eight AP courses, depending on the schedule, one in grade 10, and 7 in Grades 11 and 12.
