The institution teaches students from pre-primary to grade 10. Established in 1993 by Ratna Bahadur Gurung, it teaches up to the Lower-Secondary level SLC qualifications and guides its alumni to a college education.
The school delivers a curriculum designed to meet the needs of each student through the application of Nepal’s National Curriculum.

The primary curriculum includes the core areas of English and Nepali Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health and Physical Education, Creative and Expressive Arts, Information and Communications Technology and Vocational Education.
Students leave school to extend their knowledge and experience through educational field trips. This provides a direct first hand experience in learning as well as providing a stimulus for classroom work.
