At NOVA, we lead a fascinating discussion about how to prepare our students for a world that challenges the fundamental notions of education, well-being and success. We are looking for forward-thinkers with expertise in their profession, and equally those who possess the human skills to engage and inspire our students. In addition to your professional experiences and credentials, we would like to get to know your personal story, your motivations, and how you understand the role of learning communities.
NOVA was founded in 1997 to serve the educational needs of the Macedonian community. As the school has grown, many expatriate families from government, business, and social welfare organisations have become part of the school community. NOVA International School is recognized as the leading international school in North Macedonia today; we are a diverse school primarily serving the international community in Skopje, as well as local families with a global outlook, who represent the local diversity found here. We are known for our purpose-build award winning facilities, student outcomes, and a supportive and inclusive community of parents, students and professionals.
