The International School Nido de Aguilas

Curriculum

The Nido Middle School offers a comprehensive program that consists of core classes (Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and Spanish), as well as courses in Physical Education and the Fine and Performing Arts. Our technology curriculum is integrated into our students’ coursework, and all Grade 6 students begin MS with an IT course to prepare them for more advanced computing skills. English as a Second Language instruction and the MS Learning Support Center both provide academic support for students in need.

Our Advisory Program promotes a sense of community and addresses age-appropriate topics related to character, team-building, and academic support. A critical component of Advisory is the G.IV.E. Program, wherein students gather in cross-grade groupings to promote school spirit, tackle problem-solving initiatives, and organize and participate in community service efforts.

We also offer a rich menu of after-school sports and clubs. These activities typically are sponsored by members of the Nido staff, and they provide opportunities for students to pursue their interests and to feel a deeper sense of connection.
