Nepal Police School (formerly Dipendra Police School) is a regional system of police boarding schools in Nepal. NPS also typically refers to the first of the schools established, the Nepal Police Higher Secondary Boarding School. Also called the "Central School", it is located in Nasiksthan Sanga, 15 miles east of Kathmandu.
These schools are paid for by the welfare program of the Nepal Police Organization, and provide education to children of police personnel, but will also allow civilian children to attend (up to 40% of the school population). The school curriculum is presented primarily in English; however there is also an emphasis on developing skills with both written and oral Nepali. The school follows guidelines set by the Ministry of Education and the Higher Secondary Education Board of Nepal.
