Enriching the learning experience of students has always been, and will be at the core of our vision and mission, and we are always guided by the need to provide conducive environment and services for our learners to make their overall experience truly elevating. The need of the hour demands a paradigm shift in the way we cater to the educational needs of the new generation learners. Today, education has to be imparted effectively through a balanced and holistic approach to teaching–learning i.e. the development of learner’s intellectual, emotional, social and personal skills, physical well–being and artistic, creative and spiritual potentials.

The high-school seeks to engage students through a participatory approach to teaching–learning process, and encourages personal and collective responsibility. This is the cornerstone of the educational philosophy we subscribe to, and inculcate in our learners at National School of Sciences to enable them as life–long learners and global citizens.
