As well as being a Cambridge International School, NIS is licensed by the Ministry of Education in Malaysia, and holds a 4-Star rating from the Private and International Schools’ Inspectorate. NIS is a centre for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, and will shortly be awarded Eco-School Status under the World-Wide Fund for Nature’s programme, which contextualizes the learning of our students within the framework of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. NIS is working towards accreditation in 2020 by COBIS, the Council of British International Schools, and by the Boarding Schools’ Association.


NIS students travel to global competitions such as the World Scholars' Cup, and compete online with the best students around the world through the Mathletics and Literacy Planet websites.
