Message from the Principal

Dear parents and students, Welcome to Saint Nicholas High School! The motto of Saint Nicholas School is “Non Scholae sed Vitae Discimus”, which means we do not learn for school, but for life. In other words, learning is not solely for value but for life. The main goal of learning is not only to obtain high academic values, but also to improve the quality of self, quality of character, and quality of life towards a better direction. In accordance to that motto, all students, staff and teachers of Saint Nicholas are required to implement it and put it into practice in the process of teaching-learning inside and outside the class. In every teaching-learning process, all student and teacher must truly observe and follow the steps and procedure. In this teaching-learning, life values such as appreciation, cooperation, hard work, tolerance, peace, compassion, honesty, responsibility and other character values must be cultivated. During this academic year 2019-2020, Junior-Senior High School divisions prepare many programs, such as: Emotional Intelligence (EQ) test, Intelligence Quotient (IQ) test, Innate Talent Test, Entrepreneurship programs, Study Tour, Field Trip, Retreat, Competitions, IGCSE Programs, Exhibitions, Outreach and many other events. Furthermore, during the second semester of this academic year, Saint Nicholas High School will embrace programs such as Cambridge A & As Level program, computerization of all academic administrations (AIMSIS) and a number of other new programs. The rationale behind all of the mentioned programs is to uphold and implement the vision and mission of Saint Nicholas School which is to deliver quality of education. Last but not least, I’d like to thank all the parents who have reposed their trust in Saint Nicholas School. We assure to do our very best to give your children the required support to pursue their academic goals. Once again, welcome to Saint Nicholas. God Bless!

High School's Curriculum

High School students experience a unique period characterized by rapid growth and transition between childhood and young adulthood. We believe that with our patience and caring guidance and their own effort, they will develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Junior High School is typically a three-level schooling, Grade 7, Grade 8, and Grade 9, followed by Senior High School which includes Grade 10, Grade 11, and Grade 12. Senior High students are given more independence in high school and are being allowed to choose their class major subjects in Grade 10.

    Saint Nicholas School determine to prepare the students for the next level of education. Hence, several programs are provided for high school students :

  • 1. National Assessment (ANBK) - it is mandatory for Grade 8 and Grade 11 students to sit for the National Assessment from the Government.
  • 2. Cambridge IGCSE Program – each program covers subjects from a variety of areas : Languages ; Sciences ; Mathematics ; Humanities and Social Science ; Creative, Technical and Vocational.
  • 3. Cambridge Checkpoint Program – this program prepares our Lower Secondary students for the next stage of education by developing knowledge, understanding, and skills across the program.
  • 4. Cambridge International As&A Level Program – the program prepares our Senior High School students for university study.
