TABLE TO BE INSERTED ONCE CREATED BY NISC
Students may fail no more than one credit in each subject area: Maths, Language A, Language B, Sciences, Humanities, Arts, Physical Education, and Technology. Students must earn a minimum of 6 credits per year to advance to the next grade level.
All NISC students are IB students. Students in the Diploma Programme may opt not to take the full IB Diploma. They can choose to take exams for specific courses and earn certificates, or choose not to take any external IB exams and earn the WASC accredited NISC Diploma. However, all courses are Diploma Programme courses and modifications to the standard level criteria will only be made with an identified, documented need. Modification decisions will be made by the teachers, coordinator, counselor and Principal in consultation with the student and parents based upon compelling evidence of need.
All NISC students are IB students and must complete their Personal Project (Grade 10) and Extended Essay (Grade 12). The Personal Project and/or Extended Essay may be modified to meet individual student needs for those not taking the full IB Diploma, but is required to be completed.
All NISC students are IB students and must complete the requirements for Community and Service (C & S) in grades 9 & 10 and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) in grades 11 & 12. Modifications to the requirements may be made to meet individual student needs for those not taking the full IB Diploma, but are required to be completed.
