"Learning leads to Creativity, Creativity to Thinking, Thinking provides Knowledge and Knowledge makes you Great"
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Former President of India
The educational scenario in the North-east made me realize that we the people of the region are still unable to prove our identity at an international level. In spite of having a lot of talent in the North-Eastern region we have not been able to produce a Nobel laureate like Rabindranath Tagore or Amartya Sen, a Bharat Ratna like Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, an Oscar Winner, a great Scientist or a strong leader who could steer us through an education and an administration revolution so that the region would be naturally uplifted. Despite excellent board results, very few students of the region have actually achieved National or International acclaim. To me, it was evident that our education system needed motivating learning environment and international exposure for our students, in order to raise awareness and standards.
I felt that we as a country are not doing enough to make India the top-most nation of the world. Our IITs are nowhere as compared to Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard Universities, which are in the top 10 league. Even with a very fast growing economy, India is still considered an underdeveloped Third World nation at the United Nations Summits. Stemming from this belief of achieving excellence and striving to move forward, NPS was established in 2005.
Our mission is to provide opportunities to the students of the North-east by setting up a school of international repute which would train students with the skills needed to develop in them a fiercely competitive edge with a global perspective. I had the privilege to attend a large number of Workshops, Seminars, Educational Leaders Conclaves in India as well as abroad. Among the prominent ones are: Australia, UK, USA, Italy, Malaysia, Dubai, Germany, Singapore, Spain, and many others. I have tried to modify the dynamic and world-class educational processes and Best practices of other countries to adapt to the educational needs of India and Indian values and implement them in NPS International School.
Today, I can proudly say that NPS is the only school in the entire North-east, which provides good systematic education with an underlying stress on exposure to global thinking and a well-rounded education. NPS students are groomed to solve global issues thus truly becoming the citizens of the world and good human beings. NPS students grow to be confident enough to pursue the best opportunities, not only nationally but internationally as well. Our students have had the opportunity to experience hands-on, a certified Astronaut Training at NASA (USA). We have student exchange programmes with schools in the UK, Australia, and Germany, etc.
Our students have visited various prominent educational institutions in abroad namely Germany, Spain, USA, Australia, Singapore, China, New Zealand, UK, UAE etc., for Students Exchange and School Immersion Programmes.
Our well-qualified team of teachers from all over India and abroad has helped enrich the curriculum delivery through their own experiences and exposure. Ongoing professional development makes our teachers continually upgrade their classroom strategies in order to keep abreast with the rest of the world and meet the best academic goals.
The foundation years in the Junior School lays focus on inquiry, creativity and independent thinking which makes learning fun while being challenging. In the Middle School, students evolve academically, personally and socially with greater self-reliance through a well-balanced and holistic curriculum. Students in the Senior Secondary become more specialized in academics and focus on their eventual career choices. The School has recruited subject experts from leading Institutes like IITs, NITs, BHU, BITS and other acclaimed institutions to support their academic needs. The students of the school have achieved very good academic standings too. The school has tied up with a reputed Coaching Institute and is providing an integrated facility of both schooling and coaching under one roof. Although the students of the school are successfully pursuing courses in IITs, NITs, front-ranking engineering and medical colleges, we do hope to have students aspiring for the Ivy League Universities abroad and in India to pursue a range of newer and more creative career choices. As a result of our sincere efforts in all spheres, NPS was awarded the prestigious “Best of All”, A category in Rajiv Gandhi National Quality Award by Government of India..
We at NPS are committed to building a school that recognizes students as individuals and we ensure that they get the opportunity to blossom through meaningful and relevant learning provided by the committed NPS Team. I welcome all our parents and their children to set course with us on this long journey to a bright future at NPS International School. I also request our students to dream high and wish that they achieve success by global standards and make India proud.
