Students who join NIST in August are provided with a class schedule on the first day of school. Elementary students who join in January will receive it from their homeroom teachers. Secondary students who join in January must first select their language and arts classes, at which point they will receive their schedules.
The 10-Day Cycle
NIST is on a 10-day cycle. Each school day is lettered from A to J. NIST follows a published calendar for the 10-day cycle, which is included in this document and updated on the school’s website. The 10-day cycle was implemented to avoid the disruption caused by public holidays, which often fall on the same day of the week.
