The Nava Nalanda high school was founded in the year 1967 by a handful of enthusiasts who thought to share their values of life & rich culture of Bengal with the students of this era. It was a school that was made for the purpose of spreading knowledge & culture. Knowledge, which was not bound by text books and culture that shapes us as individuals and prepares us for our journey of life. Nava Nalanda not only taught us the courses of the curriculum but it taught us to be a good human being first. Today as we look back in our life, the school has given us so many things that it’s impossible to count. Even as we have been alumnites of other institutions, Nava Nalanda remains in each one of our heart as the most cherished alma mater.
In the year 1967, with the patronage of some eminent educationists, nine teachers embarked upon an ambitious project with 24 students of varying age group from 3 to 10 on 25, Southern Avenue. At that point of time the limit of the school was only up to class V. In the year of 1974 the first batch of students of the school appeared for Secondary examination. Within a short span of time, in the year 1980, the school name came up in the merit list when in the year 1980 ranked 4th in Madhyamik Examination. There was no looking back thereafter and the school went on to produce a bunch of brilliant individuals year after year.
The school has now spread its wings beyond the city of joy and Secondary level schooling. In 1991 the school started to spread its luminance in Shantiniketan, the abode of our greatest treasure Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore. In the year 2004 the school started its higher secondary edition too.
Apart from being one of the top educational institutes, Nava Nalanda has also got an excellent taste for culture, sports and other extra curricular activities. The extensive cultural influences of the school are visible in the fact that every year the school organizes extravagant function on Rabindra Jayanti, commemorating Rabidranath Tagore’s birthday. Annual cultural fests and sports events are organised every year for the students to showcase their extracurricular skills.
