A 5 year old boy cried on his first day to school, hoping his parents wouldn’t make him stay. That same boy, at 17, showed great reserve as he put on a brave face on his last day at school, wishing he wouldn’t have to leave. As Dickens so eloquently put,
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness..”
Schola Nova is more than a school. My time there was spent in the company of amazing faculty and mentors, as well as life-long friends. We learned, we laughed, we lived. Schola Nova will always be home.

I had the privilege of studying at Schola Nova for over 6 years. Attending this fine institution was an amazing experience one from which I gained life long friends and forged ever lasting memories which I cherish till this present day.
At Schola Nova everyone collectively strives to help children not only reach their full potential but to aim above and beyond, inculcating the time tested belief that nothing is beyond ones reach. Pushing the barriers of achievement and setting new milestones in academic excellence every step of the way.
Looking back now I can easily affirm that Schola Nova provides the essential stepping stones needed by young minds in the pursuit of a quality education.
For me, Schola Nova was more than just a school. It was home and it still is. I studied there for 11 years and I can easily say that if given a chance to go back and make a choice yet again, without a doubt I’d still choose Schola Nova. From academics to extra curricular, from basic manners to humility, Schola Nova taught me everything that I needed to be where I am today. Can’t thank Mrs Naeem and all my teachers enough for helping me achieve my goals and making me the person I am today.
Schola Nova has been the ultimate working experience for me. The teaching environment is vibrant, creative and accommodating. The staff and the students are equally warm and welcoming resulting in Schola Nova being one of the best learning institutions in Islamabad

A white bungalow at the end of street 8, Schola Nova. A place where I learnt all that I know today and the drive to achieve more was instilled in me. Inside the walls of this institution great memories were created, lifelong friends were made, and best of all it was a place that felt like home. I really appreciate what this magnificent school has taught me and cherish the memories I have here. I hope one day I can give back to the family I have at Schola Nova. Thanks a lot Schola Nova
Presently Hamza is studying in Ghulam Ishaq Institute (GIKI) completing his undergraduate in Computer Engineering, batch due in 2018. The determination instilled in him by Schola Nova has helped him get in to Pakistan’s 3rd best institute and compete for the near future.
I believe that an educational institution helps shape your life, not only by giving you quality education, but by teaching you the difference between right and wrong.
Schola Nova, has ben the stepping stone for me that enables me to always push harder to achieve my goals in life. The teachers – my mentors , helped me dream big and not settle for anything less than what I planned. With graduation a few months away and my eyes on a masters degree, I can’t thank this school enough for making me Who I am today, for teaching me never to compromise on my education values and most importantly for building the confidence in me to not let any hurdle stop me from achieving my dreams.
In other words, best school ever 🙂
