Nile Valley is entering its sixth year of operations and already has established a reputation as one of Khartoum’s leading international schools, providing a quality American/British education that has a profound effect on parents, staff and students.
Most importantly of all, however, we are privileged to have some of the best educators in Khartoum, a diverse and talented student body of 360 students and a wonderfully capable and supportive qualified Staff.
A great school is not about the facilities and the resources, however, but about the people and its core beliefs. Our core beliefs are represented well in our Mission Statement and vision. Through outstanding teaching in a nurturing and supportive environment, NVS inspires students to:
• Achieve their academic potential
• Be passionate, reflective learners
• Become caring global citizens
• Lead healthy, active and balanced lives
These points are the main “transportable gifts” that we want NVS students to take away with them when they move to college or to other schools. NVS has begun a tradition of educating students for success in the world community and we look forward to many more years of continuing with this tradition. The world community will change as will pathways to success, and our job is to make sure we provide the most relevant educational experiences to our students.
Offering the American CCSS from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and the IGCSE from Grade 9 to 11, we recognize learning as a life-long adventure. NVS values meaningful and transferable learning where we construct understanding by developing and applying knowledge, skills and attitudes. As learners, we develop and show our understanding when we:
• Apply our learning to new situations
• Inquire to extend our learning
• Create solutions
• Communicate our learning effectively
• Make connections across our learning
• Reflect critically on our learning
