The international school has three buildings designated for each level they offer: Early Years, Primary, and Secondary (Year 7 to 10). At the same time, it has indoor and outdoor play areas that are not only meant to provide a place for academic learning but for extracurricular activities, as well.
Learning also happens outside the four walls of the classroom
NAIS Manila acknowledges the value of performing arts programs in a child’s development. In fact, the school is currently in collaboration with The Juilliard School so their students have access to different performing arts programs.
