Located at the heart of the capital city, Kathmandu and easily accessible because of the extensive network of public transport, the National School of Sciences, popularly known as NIST College has been at the helm of Upper Secondary school education (Grade 11–12), earlier known as Plus 2, for nearly three decades. Started with a humble beginning from a total of 157 students and 15 staff including administrative and support staff in the Science stream only, the National School of Sciences has come a long way. The annual intake in the school hovers at around 1,200 students in Grade 11 (both Science and Management programs). Through all these years of providing academic service for aspiring students, the National School of Sciences has rightfully carved a niche for itself and is acknowledged for providing quality education within an affordable fee structure.
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 a 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 of learners. Today, education has to be imparted effectively through a balanced and holistic approach to teaching–learning i.e. the development of the learner’s intellectual, emotional, social, and personal skills, physical well-being, and artistic, creative, and spiritual potential. The 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 the National School of Sciences to enable them as life-long learners and global citizens.
