OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
A sound education is the fundamental right of all children. It is the single most important factor determining the course of lives of individuals, communities, and by extension, an entire nation. We believe education to be both a right and a necessity and yet it remains an elusive luxury for most in the third world. Since the inception of ETNS in 1949, our mission (as laid out by our founder, the late, great humanitarian, Nasra Wazir Ali, (S.I.) has been primarily focused on reducing this existing disparity between the classes, and balancing the distribution of power and privilege by enabling the younger generation to avail opportunities and create career paths usually reserved for their wealthier counterparts. For the past seven decades, the entire Nasra family, from our visionary founder to our esteemed trustees and tenacious faculty, has been relentlessly championing this movement, proving that the dream, the whisper, the precious promise of an enlightened and empowered Pakistan is alive and thriving.
Today, Nasra School is an institution not just because of age and standing, but because of its impassioned adherence to the guiding principles upon which it was founded: our deeply-rooted values, mission and vision which continue to steer our daily teachings, simultaneously grounding and liberating us, all the while reverberating poignantly through our classrooms, our hallowed halls and our hearts.

The loftiest of all ideals, it is fair-mindedness beyond discrimination, allowing for the understanding and respect for others' religious beliefs, socioeconomic backgrounds, and unique perspectives without harsh judgment. In a world that is evolving rapidly and growing exponentially, we must teach our children to expand their horizons, widen their circles of compassion and be open to the infinite possibilities awaiting a more beautiful tomorrow.
