Welcome to Nirjhar Higher Secondary School – A School of Excellence.

The School was born on 19th April, 2004 as an important component of “DURGAPUR CHILD CITY PROJECT” conceived by DCAC. Durgapur Child City Project is the concept integrated child development scheme it is built on 12 acres of land at the centre of the Indistrial City Durgapur with a network of education institutions, centre for performing arts, swimming pool, health centres, auditorium etc. It enjoys the blessings of Central and State Govt. local self Govt., SAIL and maestros in the field of arts, literature and culture.

It is the only school system ever built in social sector and its main course are decided through social interaction. DCAC as the promoter of the school takes all steps for mobilizing all logistic social support. Unlike other private institution, the school system is financially self-reliant and not a farthing is indebted to financial institution of-course. Its source of finance is mostly the guardians society, SAIL, Public Bodies and most importantly Hon’ble Members of Parliament. The school has been established in the year 2004 with primary status. We contemplate to go beyond Higher Secondary….

Nirjhar stands for modern approach towards managing and imparting Co-educational Higher Secondary School system, opened to both English & Bengali medium with Hindi as the special curriculum. The school which holds the largest campus in Durgapur, endeavors to carry forward the impartation beyond education and into the orbit of knowledge.

It is maintained within natural atmosphere and greenery. Faculties are created while combining veterans with freshers. The archaic mode of coercion, both physical & mental, is forbidden. The method for integrating knowledge from one to other faculties, in aid of expanding extra-curricular activities with swimming (lower classes), rock climbing, Yoga (for hostel students). Proposed summer camp and other games. All these helps to cultivate building of self confidence which stands one of the focus of Nirjhar objective.

Similarly, Nirjhar holds best available faculties for imparting performing arts and provides platform for presenting their qualities. It holds the arrangement for revision classes while holding the pupil in boarding section after school curriculum is over, maintain arrangement for holding children up to evening for facilitating the serving parents.

Nirjhar probably run the best residential system to suit the reach of middle class and with separate arrangement for girls student. Separate facilities are created within the campus for those desire to learn specialized course of Dance and physique building course like Karate. Durgapur Children Academy of Culture to which NIRJHAR a self governed subsidiary, hold the best Dance School in Northern India on Bharat Natyam, after Kolkata. The school operates with Guru T. Sankar Narayan, the then head of department of Viswa Bharati, Santiniketan.


Morning Assembly is conducted by each house on a rotation basis. The school day begins with prayer song. This is followed by the singing of “National Anthem” with grace and sobriety to remind the students every day of the commitments to their motherland. Followed by “News up-dating” to keep our children conscious of the events happening around the world. To draw inspiration from the lives of great men and leaders, their thoughts and views are quoted and pondered over.

The school day is a combination of academics, sports and co-curricular pursuits. The study time-table is interspersed with recreational activities.


We believe the greatest mission of a nation, the key of all developments should be the production and diffusion of knowledge to bring up a young generation in health, strength and in the vigor of intellectuality.

Simultaneously, we have to give our children in school the opportunity to know the mystique and magic associated with the rich and true cultural heritage of our country. They need to recognize that they are standing on the “Shoulders of Giants”. These will inculcate courage, wisdom and sense of creativity.

Nirjhar is being groomed with this mission in the background. A variety of academic, aesthetic, athletic, cultural and social activities are synchronized into a single academic faculty. It is an ambitious Endeavour to impart education in an innovative stress-free manner and to encourage a spirit of challenge and competitiveness.
