Air Quality

1. Indoor Purification Equipment

To provide a safe and comfortable daily learning environment, an air purification system has been integrated into the design of every building. Typically, air purification filters are replaced two times per year in January and July. In addition, the air conditioning filter is cleaned every summer.

2. Air Purification Standards

Even on days of severe air pollution, NOA’s indoor air quality will always meet national standards. Daily testing monitors the air quality in all school buildings, including PM2.5 airborne particles.

3. Air Quality Response

In order to protect our staff and students and to ensure a healthy learning environment, NOA has formulated a strict and comprehensive air pollution response strategy. Specially appointed monitors keep up to date with current air quality standards in order to take timely action. Staff members are also instructed to monitor student well-being and to consult medical experts if any student is feeling unwell. Our school doctors regularly check students with asthma to ensure that they are cared for in the most timely and effective manner.
