Our state-of-the-art campus has been designed and created for the future of learning. In a former Microsoft building, the school is in the centre of a business hub and will make full use of this with technology integration throughout the school.
NAIS Dublin will be a premium and contemporary campus in the heart of South Dublin. It will benefit from outstanding sports facilities within the campus and with partners around Dublin. Amongst some of the amenities will be:
Our state-of-the-art Performing Arts areas, designed in collaboration with The Juilliard School, includes a 120-seat theatre, choral room, dance studio, as well as various keyboard and string laboratories to complement our exciting music curriculum too.

We will have modern and purpose built Design Technology classrooms with CAD Lab Studios, 3D printers, print media and laser printing studios. In addition, we will have technology suites and hubs for interactive digital learning.
Our students learn about Biology, Chemistry and Physics in our Science center, with laboratory spaces and student centered forums fully equipped with cutting-edge apparatus and practical resources to engage students in experimental scientific investigations.
Our school dining areas, available to all students and staff, will offer a variety of healthy food and drinks choices. In addition to this, our Parent Hub Café will be open throughout the school day, serving nutritious food and drinks to students, staff and parents. It will also be open for early morning drop-off and after school for the extra-curricular programme.

Early Years Centre (KG3 and KG4)
Our early years environment will be specifically designed to enable students to explore, experiment, discover, take risks and apply their learning in different contexts. Spaces are designed to allow students to make personal choices, realize their personal interests and experience the outcomes of their decisions. The space is considered to be the third teacher. These specially designed learning areas include: Reading and Library area, Mathematics area, Physical development area and a Creative area. Our early years center also provides early child with access to outdoor experiences. The outdoors environment includes special areas: Digging, Music, Numbers and Letters, Role Play, Balls, Bikes, Skipping Ropes and a Collaborative Area where children work together to create and solve problems.
Designs of the learning spaces will be shared in due course.
