Education is the path to international leadership and parents are demanding a high quality education to enable their child to become a productive citizen in the 21st Century. As a result of a rise in income level, increased educational awareness and increasing exposure to the developed world, Nepalese parents are demanding a high quality education to be available here in Nepal. Realizing the importance of a quality education in the 21st century, a group of young and energetic education professionals have established Swostishree Gurukul in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Swostishree Gurukul has been created to provide modern methods of learning by using the latest state-of-the art facilities and research-based teaching methods. Our philosophy of teaching is progressive, child centered and active. Our experienced, trained and highly dedicated team works hard to promote a variety of choices of teaching-learning activities which are designed to encourage physical skills, cognitive learning, literacy acquisition, problem solving and independent thought to the little ones.
Swostishree Gurukul is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.**
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

**Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
