Dear friends! We are glad to welcome you to the website of the Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics in Astana!

Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics in Astana is the first school established under the project “Intellectual Nation -2020”. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the school on January 12, 2009, President Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that this is a school for talented children who will be fully prepared for future activities in the fields of science, economics and politics.

In October 2016, the school received an international accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS).

The intellectual school creates comfortable conditions and a special benevolent atmosphere for the children. The school is equipped with modern classrooms, extended laboratories of physics, chemistry and biology, with educational and game zones. There are sports and fitness halls, a library, a canteen, a medical unit, a choreographic and assembly hall, a greenhouse  on the territory.
Intellectual school operates on the principle of “full-time school”. In the first half of the day, students go through basic and specialized subjects included in the NIS-Program. After lunch, students attend classes that contribute to the deepening and expansion of knowledge. The variety and availability of additional programs allow to achieve both academic, as well as physical, personal and creative growth of the student.

The Intellectual School has developed a multilingual program that provides the studying of the second and third languages on the basis of the native language and ensures their successful integration with other subjects. The school has international teachers from the UK, the USA, Canada, Norway, Kenya, Finland, etc. Together with their Kazakhstani colleagues, they practice team- teaching.

Participation in school holidays, festivals, concerts, games, visits to theaters and museums unite students and teachers of our school into one community.

The dining room provides students with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and snack. If necessary, students are given a place in the school dormitory.

Welcome to the Intellectual school – full of bright events, discoveries, unforgettable impressions!
With respect to you, Principal of NIS PHM Astana – Zhakenov Meiram Amirzhanovich.
