ASSOCIATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMME (DP) COORDINATOR



STARTING DATE: TO BE DISCUSSED

CLOSING DATE: UNTIL FILLED


Description of School:


Neev, started in 2005, and we now have five preschools and Neev Academy - a full continuum IB school. A learning community of 200 teachers and 1000 children for ages 1.5 through to Year 12. Our educators encourage and develop children’s natural curiosity and knowledge.


Neev is an intellectually challenging, creatively vibrant, and diverse community of children and teachers set up to meet the needs of a changing India – with the return of neighborhood schools where children don’t have to make the trade - off of 2 hours of commute for 30 minutes of sports, schools which move beyond either/or, focusing on academics and creative thinking, recognizing that what has helped some of us succeed as global Indians will not meet the needs of our children in a rapidly globalizing world, where value moves from resources to knowledge to ideas; a world where joining the dots is as essential as the strength of those dots.


Neev seeks to build knowledge, self-awareness and relationships with people and the environment to seek happy, healthy, impactful lives - keeping in line with the IB mission of producing global citizens.

We see education as being transformative in that our aim is to instil in our students the knowledge that will make them better learners and better people. And how can we ensure that we send them off into life with the skills they really need to grow and develop in a successful, happy way.
