National High School (NHS as it is adeptly and commonly called) is now a government-aided high school in Bangalore.


It is in the southern part of Bangalore, in a location called Basavanagudi.

History of The School

The school opened in the year 1917 A.D. as a public school system, for enriching the lives of people in and around south Bangalore with an education system considered prime for its age. To day it is about 100 years old.


During the period 1935-1938 there was a visit of The Great Gama(the world wrestler) and party. There was a group photograph taken at that time, with our Head Master(a lean chap)sitting by the side of Gama(with his hefty body).

This photograph may be available in the present school or with any other relatives. A request to forward is made with this article. Please contact through this article's discussion page, to inform about the availablity. my school (vinay gowda mandya)
