One teacher per small number of students is good!
Our child is very happy! Additionally, NLIS is a diverse community with a global perspective. NLIS allows our child to develop, adapt, and become a more versatile learner.
Our child has changed positively ever since she joined NLIS. She enjoys coming to school every morning. She still wishes that there were no weekends so that she could keep coming to school.
A loving child-centered school, where teachers help support and recognize my child's strengths and weaknesses create an environment that makes my child happy to go to school.
We appreciate the school taking our child in even though it was mid-year, providing him with a safe environment in which to learn and grow.
The things I value most about NLIS are 1) a safe environment in which my child can learn 2) the Teaching of values that should be adhered to both in and out of school 3) Respect for religious beliefs other than Christianity.
NLIS is the best school in the whole world on the point that all the teachers love their students as much as they love God.
NLIS is a great school with a good, loving, and caring faculty. Teachers are very good and focused on teaching. My child is learning lots of things and activities under the teachers' guidance. We wish that this school grows fast. The education level and practical knowledge given by teachers are very good. NLIS is just fantastic! --a father of a 3rd-grade child
NLIS has provided my daughter with a safe, loving, and nurturing environment in which she has been able to find her talents and strengths and blossom into a confident child. - father of a 4th grader
"Love." That's the word that best describes NLIS. Two of my children are growing and being educated in love. -- a mother of 2nd and 4th-grade children
My son joined NLIS last year as a 1st grader and is in the 2nd grade this year. His English has grown greatly, but I can also see that he has started to have his own ideas and is more independent. When he was a 1st grader, he always asked me to help or to check his homework, but this year he has confidence and does his homework by himself. I think it happens because the teachers accept his whole individual character and work to develop those characters. He tells his idea positively in our conversation and he even makes me shocked sometimes because he says, "I think this way because of this..." I appreciate the teachers for accepting the good sides of students' individual character and developing them with structure. -- a mother of a 2nd grader
Both our daughters are very happy at NLIS, and I believe that it is mostly due to the fabulous loving environment in the school, which allows them to flourish naturally in their own way. - a father of 2nd and 4th-grade children
