Dr. K P Gopalkrishna Chairman, NPS Group of Institutions, NAFL and TISB There are few things more valued by parents than the education of their children. Parents look for building academic excellence, strong moral values and discipline in their children to prepare them for life. Choosing the right school for them is therefore a crucial decision. National Public School provides highest standards of educational excellence to our students. We believe in providing a well rounded and balanced school programme that makes all our students independent learners who aim to excel in whatever field they chose to pursue. Parents who chose NPS believe in our traditions and culture. It is this partnership between the parents and the school that lays the foundation for the student’s success in later life. National Public School has been at the forefront of introducing and affecting a creative approach to education over the last six decades. It is what has helped NPS retain its preeminent position as one of the most sought after schools in the country. Teachers are at the heart of our efforts in implementing our curriculum and supporting our students in becoming the best versions of themselves. Our objective at NPS is to provide a happy, balanced and challenging environment where our students have the opportunity to fulfill their individual talents and goals. In parallel, we provide a wide range of cultural, sporting and co-curricular activities to our students and also an opportunity to develop leadership in a sensitive and respectful environment. We wish all our students and parents the very best at NPS.
Dr. Santhamma Gopalkrishna Dean, NPS Group of Institutions, NAFL and TISB Education has a multifaceted function. Education facilitates the transformation from childhood to adulthood and later as adults towards a better understanding of the world. In Swami Vivekananda’s words, “Education is not the amount of information that is put in to your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We want that education, by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, intellect is expanded and by which we can stand on one’s own feet.” Education should aim at physical, mental and spiritual development. There should be opportunities for gaining knowledge, building character and developing personality. The training one gets from schools and colleges should include academic excellence – professional, scientific and technological; attainment of life skills; and vocational efficiency. The training should also help to manifest innate potentialities by making students aware of opportunities and making use of opportunities. Progress of a country depends on its education system. The emphasis on developing patriotism and pride in one’s culture is indispensable. In this era of globalization it is also necessary to understand economic, social and political aspects of all the countries. Practicing brotherhood, love and compassion between different communities, races and nations is of utmost importance. Daniel Webster put it rightly “Knowledge does not comprise all which is contained in the large term of education. The feelings are to be disciplined, the passions are to be restrained; true and worthy motives are to be inspired, a profound religious feeling is to be instilled and pure morality inculcated under all circumstances. All this is comprised in education.” Education in its true sense leads to health and fitness, happy relationships, meaningful work, and personal fulfilment. We at NPS promote an atmosphere where education is a blend of progressive ideas from the best in the Indian setting and culture. Students are given personal care and support so that they take the rightful place in the global society. Best wishes

Principal "Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives." On the outset, a very warm greetings to all from NPS, Yelahanka ! It is true that the future of a country takes shape in its classrooms. NPS Yelahanka is committed to its journey towards excellence. We recognise that the paradigm of education is rapidly changing with the advancement in technology and exposure to varied media. It is an altogether new era of teaching and learning. Education today is dynamic, multidimensional and a very challenging process. It should give students the wings to fly on their own but at the same time keep them rooted with values inculcated in them. A school is a world in miniature where one receives education for life. NPS has been known for its significant contribution to the field of education which is the result of a relevant academic programme, discipline and a dedicated team of faculty. Our mission at NPS Yelahanka is to prepare our students for challenges of the global world, a world that continually demands new skills and competencies, a world that requires our students to excel in communication and inter personal skills, a world that requires them to be perennial learners. It is our binding duty to empower our students with knowledge and skills that would provide them with a firm foundation to create a niche for themselves in the future that is theirs. Therefore it is our endeavour to provide this empowerment through focus on all domains for the holistic development of our students - cognitive, moral, social, athletic and physical. Excellence is perhaps the word of the day but excellence without discipline, focus and direction is only half the goal achieved. I hope and pray to see our students not just well placed in their careers but to see them make the world a better place. We are committed to see them reach out to their dreams and turn them into reality, to see them set milestones of their own, be assets to their parents, to the society and to the nation. Working together with parents, we will continue to forge tomorrow's leaders today.
