To facilitate the application process and ensure that all necessary forms and documents are received by
NVS in a timely manner, we generated the Application Checklist for your convenience.
Complete the Application Form and submit the required documents
Please note that all requested information and application documents must be submitted before the admissions process
begins. Once the application is complete and all materials are received, the admission office will review the application.
Completing the application form does not guarantee admission.
It only prepares it for “Step three” of the application process, which is the review of the application.
Process and Review of Application
Review of the applications takes time. It may take up to two weeks for the admission office to
process a completed application. Applications may continue to be received by
the admission office staff. However, official processing of applications may be deferred to a later date.
The NVS academic year starts in August and ends in June of the following calendar year.
Applicants for admission to NVS are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible.
There are no firm application deadlines, but as certain grade levels tend to fill up
rather quickly, it is recommended to apply sooner rather than later. The application is
reviewed in light of available seats, and the school's ability to provide adequate EAL
and/or Learning Support. If the Admissions Office has questions or concerns about a
student, the family will be contacted to provide additional information.
Notification of Application Status
Offer of Placement
The acceptance will be made by the Admissions Committee after reviewing all documents.
If your child meets all admissions criteria, you will receive a formal letter of offer from the
Registrar and can begin to anticipate a positive transition into the NVS Community.
For the new school year commencing in August, new students are generally not offered
places until returning students have completed their re-enrollment process. Acceptance
for new students will be offered before the end of March.
If an applicant meets admissions requirements but is applying for enrollment in a grade level or
program that is full, then that applicant will be placed in the wait pool for that particular school year.
If a place becomes available, parents are notified and will receive an offer of placement
(please see previous section). If it is determined that space will not be available during the
requested school year, parents are notified in writing. If a candidate is interested in applying
for the following year, a new application must be submitted.
An applicant may be denied admission when there are concerns about academic, social or emotional,
or when NVS is unable to offer a program to adequately meet an individual student's learning needs.
Upon acceptance of the applicant a one-time non-refundable registration fee is required for all new students before they are officially accepted into the school. Please contact our Business Manager with any specific questions pertaining to invoicing and payment of the school fees via:
Before the first day of school, additional documents may be required.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am delighted to welcome back our students, parents, staff members and well-wishers for the new academic year.
Throughout the years, Nile Valley School has enjoyed a proven track record of success and earned a reputation for academic excellence by providing high educational standards. The Board of Directors is committed to providing every possible means of support to the School leadership in order to ensure that our NVS students develop the multi-talented skills and benefits derived from a positive learning experience. We are justly proud of our outstanding varied, global oriented school curriculum that is not only American based but also follows the IGCSE program in partnership with the Cambridge International Examination Board. Student academic growth is measured by MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) testing three times a year via an online assessment that is aligned to the Common Core standards.
The Board of Directors is greatly appreciative of our teaching and non-teaching staff who give generously of their many talents to provide quality learning opportunities for the students. We are pleased to have an energetic, creative, highly qualified and enthusiastic group of teachers who uphold the highest academic standards. During the course of this school year, we will ensure that regular monitoring of the school’s performance is a collaborative undertaking. As such, we encourage parental support in matters such as ensuring the completion of homework assignments and having students arrive at school promptly in the morning.
It is our resolve that parental involvement and working in partnership with our teaching faculty for the benefit of their children, will result in a well-rounded quality education for the students that have been entrusted to our care. We are proud of each and every one.
We look forward to a great academic year ahead. A year that is filled with exciting extra curricula activities and a challenging academic program.
With best wishes for a successful school year. Mr. Mamoun Gamal

Welcome to the website of Nile Valley School, Khartoum. We hope that the information we have provided about our school is useful to you. If you need further information, please contact any of us at NVS and we will do our very best to help.
Nile Valley is entering its sixth year of operations and already has established a reputation as one of Khartoum’s leading international schools, providing a quality American/British education that has a profound effect on parents, staff and students.
Most importantly of all, however, we are privileged to have some of the best educators in Khartoum, a diverse and talented student body of 360 students and a wonderfully capable and supportive qualified Staff.
A great school is not about the facilities and the resources, however, but about the people and its core beliefs. Our core beliefs are represented well in our Mission Statement and vision. Through outstanding teaching in a nurturing and supportive environment, NVS inspires students to:
• Achieve their academic potential
• Be passionate, reflective learners
• Become caring global citizens
• Lead healthy, active and balanced lives
These points are the main “transportable gifts” that we want NVS students to take away with them when they move to college or to other schools. NVS has begun a tradition of educating students for success in the world community and we look forward to many more years of continuing with this tradition. The world community will change as will pathways to success, and our job is to make sure we provide the most relevant educational experiences to our students.
Offering the American CCSS from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and the IGCSE from Grade 9 to 11, we recognize learning as a life-long adventure. NVS values meaningful and transferable learning where we construct understanding by developing and applying knowledge, skills and attitudes. As learners, we develop and show our understanding when we:
• Apply our learning to new situations
• Inquire to extend our learning
• Create solutions
• Communicate our learning effectively
• Make connections across our learning
• Reflect critically on our learning
We are looking forward to an exciting and busy school year for 2018-19 with excellent academics that achieves the best of every student combined with a full curriculum of art, music, sport and technology.
Please contact us if we can assist you with anything.
