Introduction Established in 1993 (2049 B.S), Rosebud School is a co-educational institute located at the heart of Kathmandu city. It offers education from the pre-primary level to Grade 12. Rosebud currently has about 1350 students. Our students are either non-residential or residential. Our mission is to provide a child-centred learning environment within which every child has an equal opportunity to realize their full potential, have a healthy intellectual, physical and emotional growth and prepare themselves for life in a rapidly changing world. Instead of emphasizing only on academic growth, Rosebud School seeks to provide an opportunity for the holistic and all-round development of every child through our Complete Schooling Program (CSP). We offer distinct and well-diversified activities for our students during the school hours to ensure their intellectual, kinesthetic (physical) and emotional development. In contrast to the traditional schools of Nepal, participation in sports and co-curricular activities is compulsory for every student of our school. Our school hours are longer – starting from 8:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m. for five to six days a week – which is indeed encouraging for an ever-increasing number of working parents in our society. Dedicated and well-qualified teachers, hard-working staff and committed, long term oriented management team all work together to achieve the mission of Rosebud School and to ensure the delivery of quality service in every sector of the school.
Classrooms Classrooms are spacious and well-ventilated with ample natural and artificial lighting and cooling facilities. Properly designed furniture, dust-free whiteboards, display boards, and power supply for audio-visual facilities are standard features in our classrooms.

Students with injuries that require urgent medical attention are taken to nearby hospitals and the concerned parents are informed immediately. Every student’s health records are kept on file for reference purposes. Our school offers the service of a professional doctor (paediatrician) once a week for a regular checkup and health-related advice.
