Mrs. Nalini Narayan, the principal of Bangalore International High (ICSE and Shining Stars- Preprimary) is an eminent persona who started off her noble career with a belief that she could have a profound impact on the lives of children.

When she started her career as a lecturer for Logic and Sociology in 1997, she was inclined towards counselling the students with respect to peer pressure, positive challenge and study skills and strategies.

Her interest took her to enrol into Counselling Diploma under the leadership of Ajit Buoyancee. This helped her widen her thinking arena, thus persuading her into solving and helping the students with a different perspective and to give them a helping shoulder and a patient ear just what they always needed.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter as Principal of Bangalore International High ICSE & Shining Stars Preprimary, my alma mater. As the Principal of a school with such a long and distinguished heritage, I am inspired daily by our staff and students who work closely together to create a unique school community, Bangalore International High is a coveted institution in Bangalore, catering to parents

looking for holistic and all-round development. We believe that every child is bestowed with inimitable capabilities, talent and immense potential which needs to be nurtured and tapped.At the dawn of the new millennium, as the nation is on its way to emerge as a dominant power in the comity of nations, our future generations need to don the mantle of leadership in all spheres. The children of today will carry the pillars of our nation tomorrow and steer it to its rightful place in the world stage. Therefore while academic excellence is the ‘raisond’etre ’ of the school, it is also imperative to ensure that our children are groomed to attain their full potential so that when they leave the portals of the school they have blossomed into confident young adults ready to make a mark in the outside world. To achieve this great mission, the school follows a child –centered curriculum based on the ICSE pattern supplement with co-curricular and extra- curricular programmes.

From kindergarten till he steps out, the student is ably guided on his/her journey of discovery, exploration, enquiry and experimentation. All children are equipped with life skills which will in turn foster a sense of self esteem and self belief that will enable them to stride ahead with conviction in their own abilities. The school provides a caring and a child-friendly learning environment where a thirst for knowledge is to be quenched by our highly qualified faculty.

Excellence in every sphere is the hallmark of our institution. Be it in the class room, playfields, or extra-curricular activities our children do excel. In addition the significance of moral values and empathy for the under privileged is given equal importance. The school with its quality infrastructure, ethos and vision has already made a mark and carved niche as one of the leading educational institutions. Upgradation of facilities is a continuous process and is a top priority with the Management. It is our earnest endeavor to upgrade the school future to world class standards.
