Self-checkout prototype in the secondary library

We are going to try self-checkout upstairs in the secondary library, where the student, teacher, or parent checks out their own books using a laptop with instructions next to it. Laptops for searching for books are always available. If you want to bring your class for checkout, let us know ahead of time (or on your way) and one of us will be able to assist you upstairs.


We will still close the secondary library during break and lunch until we have made the “big move” and become one gloriously united library.


Please give us your feedback on how things are going in the library and what we can do to improve!

Student Access to Campus

Hello NIS Students,

We care about you and want nothing more than your safety and security. With this in mind, there are times you cannot be on campus, places you cannot go on campus, and things you cannot do while on campus. To find out more, click here for our Student Access to Campus document.

We love it when you are here before school, after-school, and on the weekends for scheduled and supervised NIS co-curricular activities. We don’t love it so much when you are here at these times and should not be.

You know who loves you all the time? Your parents! Please visit them at your home instead of gaming in the cafeteria or lurking around the hallways after school. They will appreciate it and so will we. Many thanks.

Who We Are

We are a group of people who are united in the belief that education is one of the most basic and valuable assets in our society and therefore should be accessible to all young people.  We have made it our aim to extend this gift of education to as many children as possible who would otherwise not be afforded the opportunity.


Why We Are

In April 2000 the Pfrang family lost their lives in a dreadful crime in their home in Nanjing. From sorrow for Sandra, Thorsten, Petra and Jürgen Pfrang, the desire arose to keep the memory of the family alive through making a positive contribution to the society we choose to live and work in. The foundation acknowledges the fact that social inequality and poor education prepare the grounds for crimes.


How We Are Organized

The Pfrang Association is a nonprofit charity organization with the intention of providing funds aimed at helping underprivileged children in Jiangsu and Anhui Province to attain an education. In setting up the Association, we have developed a partnership with Amity Foundation ( This foundation has years of experience dealing with the needs of young people in China and aspires to achieve similar goals as the Pfrang Association. The Pfrang Association is administered entirely through a group of volunteers and governed by the Articles of the Association.
