Academic Teams
Academic challenge, personal development, teamwork!
Academic teams at NSS are offered to any students who seek an academic challenge, personal development, and the benefits of teamwork through mutual support and great sense of accomplishment.
Most teams are established annually and meet after school, before school, weekends or holidays. Students participate in an academic team in addition to their regular courses. Participation in team activities, attendance to regular study sessions, showing positive attitude and support for team members are keystones for student accomplishment and determining factors for coaches to choose and maintain members. Students are responsible to monitor their calendars carefully to avoid scheduling conflicts.
