Nahar International School is a co-educational Day school with a student strength of 900. It is affiliated to the IB for its IBDP programme and is a candidate school for the IBCP programme. It is also affiliated to the CAIE and follows the Cambridge Programme from the pre-primary to Grade 10.
The school is located in the central suburbs of the city and provides the availability of international education on a large, well-equipped and aesthetic campus to a vast township around it. It is an eight storey structure with two basements for administrational functions and faculty parking. Every classroom at NIS is designed to be airy, spacious and inviting, in order to create a comfortable environment conducive for learning. Each class is also equipped with SmartBoards and electronic methods of knowledge dissemination. The school has well thought-out infrastructure such as modern workshops, German-design science labs, iMac computer studios, a vast digitized library, spacious conference rooms and a large turf-based playground.
Nahar International School (NIS) is a young school which uses its fresh perspective in dynamic and innovative ways. It aims at creating globally adept world citizens and leaders for the future. Students are encouraged to be participators in academics, sports, and performing arts through programmes that are rigorous but not rigid.
NIS inculcates a holistic and learning-centric way of life. It aims to endow students with the right attitude, attributes, skills and social traits to care for themselves, their immediate society and the community at large. Hence, at NIS, we consider CAS to be a 'way of life'. Students across all age groups are active participants in CAS.
Through our various Club Activities (Film Making, Photography, Carpentry, Cookery, Dance, Lawn Tennis, Archery, Football, Basketball, etc.), we offer our students numerous opportunities to engage themselves creatively and athletically.
Since Service is an integral part of our philosophy, we encourage students to engage themselves in various service related projects. In the past, our IB students have worked with several organizations, such as Bookwallah (an NGO that helps in setting up libraries at orphanages). Our students raised awareness, ran a book collection campaign and held a fundraiser for the NGO. NIS students have also been regular volunteers at a nearby Municipal school teaching younger students every week and making several teaching aids for the teachers. Some of our students also took the initiative to help our support staff in learning Spoken English.
Our students also undertake field visits to nearby tribal villages to understand the sustainable lives led by their inhabitants, or engage in waste-management related trips.
Our first batch of two IBDP students have successfully graduated and moved on to McGill University, Canada and UWE, Bristol, for a Bachelors of Engineering in Bio Engineering and a Bachelors in Art in Product Design in UK respectively.
