Mission

What is NICE?

The Newtown International Center for Education (NICE) is an educational organization that aims to prepare students and teachers to be culturally and globally literate citizens through academic learning opportunities and real-world experiences, cultural exposure, and discussion of global issues.

ABOUT

We are based in Newtown, Connecticut and work in and with the Newtown public school system to reach students, teachers, and the community.

NICE, the NICE Club, and the NICE Parent & Community Organization are led by administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members of Newtown. All positions are volunteer-based.

In an effort to fulfill our mission, we provide opportunities for students and teachers to travel abroad, host international students and teachers in their homes, participate in cultural activities, and provide interactive and educational cultural programming for Newtown schools.
