The International School Nido de Aguilas

Nido Parent Association

The Nido Parent Association (NPA) at the International School Nido de Aguilas is an organization open to all Nido parents which works to promote the involvement of the school community through social and educational events, with the aim of enhancing open and transparent communication among the parent and teacher community, school administration, and the governing Board of Directors.

The NPA aims to collaborate with our children's education and promote community spirit among all the Nido community.

Its main objectives are:

  • Improve communication among parents and faculty
  • Promote and collaborate with school programs and events
  • Provide financial support to the Nido community through funds raised from the NPA Store, language classes, Booster Club activities, and a number of other events
  • Promote participation and community spirit through NPA events
  • Facilitate the transition and integration of new families to the Nido community

The NPA welcomes the involvement of all parents and encourages the sharing of ideas and previous school experiences.
