Sun Rise English School is a private school in Bharatpur, Chitwan. It is one of the premier private schools of Nepal.[1]

History[edit]

Sun Rise English School was established in 1987 by Mr. Dinanath Duwadi, in his own home in Bharatpur-06, Krishnapur, Chitwan. Classes ran from Nursery to 5th grade. There were 33 students enrolled and 5 staff and teachers working in the school. After running the school for 3 years in his home, the board of directors moved it to Dipendra Nagar. The school was moved behind Birendra Multiple Campus, Dipendra Nagar in the fall of 1992. After running the school for two more years, the school's Board of Directors declared liquidity. In the summer of 1994, the school was closed with 142 students enrolled and studying.

Within a week, the school was purchased by a group of young educators. The new group registered the school as Sun Rise English School, removing the word 'boarding' from its previous name. Mr. Bal Bahadur Acharya was selected as the acting principal of the school. The new management brought all the teachers and staff, and all the physical assets including the school building from the previous management and started the classes at the same place behind Birendra Multiple Campus in Dipendra Nagar.

The school has attended generally good reputation as one of the best Secondary Schools outside Kathmandu Valley. With overall excellent results in the SLC examinations, the school has established itself as a strong competitor in the Nepalese education system.
