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.
The school emphasizes the activity, problem–solving and project–based learning, and make learners take ownership of the learning process. Our teachers engage students in active learning that helps students focus not only on what to learn but also how to learn. Students are encouraged to think hard rather than passively receive information from teachers. Thus, students play important part in their own learning process. Teaching–learning is based on hands–on experiences and practical, and students are encouraged to actively participate in all activities aimed at enriching the learning experiences.
AT Bhaktapur NIST, all our faculty members are drawn from highly competent and dedicated individuals who are passionate about the teaching profession, and have substantial years of teaching experience. The management focuses on the professional development of teachers, and provides them with workshops and trainings regularly to enable them to be familiar with the latest teaching–learning approaches and student assessment systems. We are guided by a strong leadership team, who are accomplished and experienced in teaching, academic administration and management
The school provides non-credit courses beyond the core academics that students can register for, as per their interest. For students of the year–two (Grade 12), preparatory or refresher courses aimed at competitive examinations in the Medical and Engineering field and preparation for standardized tests such as IELTS, TOEFL, SATs, etc. are scheduled in the leisure time within the regular routine.
In addition, sessions on Higher studies and Career counselling are scheduled once a week wherein experienced Guidance Counsellor(s) are available for students. The Counsellor(s) help with, and guide students to make informed decisions on the area of higher studies that best suit their aptitude and interest alongside scholarship schemes available for them. The students are also guided on the application procedures and requirements. Students are required to make pre-informed reservation of the slots available for interacting with the Counsellor well in advance. There is also an option for students’ keen on taking up a course on the basics of a foreign language such as Spanish, French or Mandarin during the two–years of high school, provided the number of interested students registering for the course is substantial.

I am very much indebted to NIST for providing me such wonderful memories. The school management and administration were very cooperative which let students like me work hard and remain enthusiastic all year long. I feel really proud to be student of NIST.
I remember the first day I randomly walked into NIST to get the form for entrance test even though I had been selected for admission at St. Xavier’s College, as the turning point of my life. Those two years spent with wonderful friends and inspiring teachers built me the strong foundation of my professional achievements today.
NIST has given me a great platform to achieve my lifelong dreams. It has maintained its legacy for 27 years and done a great service to this nation by producing skilled human resources. I wish NIST all the best for the future.
I really feel great for being an alumnus of this renowned academic institution. Due to the strong foundation provided by NIST school with excellent teachers, staff mentors and homely educational environment, I have become capable of making my career in the field I aspired.
