Niveditha S. Iyer
We are delighted to share the excellent news of our student Niveditha S. Iyer (Class of 2020) making history by being the first student from NPS Koramangala to have been accepted to both Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
A quintessential leader and a consummate problem solver Niveditha played the role of an exemplary School Prefect in her final year. So immense was her contribution to the school that she was awarded the Most Valuable Student of the Year Award during the academic session 2019-20.
A great role model, not just as the School Prefect, Niveditha has gone on to exceptionally influence her juniors by being a multifaceted student who left an imprint on whatever role she has adorned during her school days. She has chosen the prestigious Stanford University over MIT where she intends to major in Computer Science and study Cognitive Science alongside. We wish her great success in her future endeavours.
It is a matter of great pride and pleasure that Shadan Hussain, student of NPS Koramangala (batch 2019-20) secured 7th rank in ComedK and 143rd rank in CET held this year. Shadan attributes his success to relentless preparation and focus on keeping his basics strong. He wishes to pursue engineering in Computer Science.
Speaking Tiger Books via their children's publishing arm published a book, 'A Bend in Time : Writings by Children on the COVID 19 Pandemic'. It is a collection of stories and essays by children from different parts of India - about their thoughts and experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Shreya Aiyer's (XII B) essay is one of the dozen pieces that is published in the book. She writes about reading, sourcing books, getting acclimatised to reading digitally during these changed times.
Throughout the collection there runs a sense of time lost and gained—of how this phase of global history is a bend in time. Honest, wise yet innocent, thoughtful and full of hope, this anthology is a peek into the mind of a generation that could re-imagine our world and, if we are lucky, make it safer, wiser and more compassionate.

NPS Koramangala team comprising Ayantika Sen, Devarati Mukherjee and Lavanya Kalia of Grade 8 bagged second place in the interschool hackathon – Wings of fire- organised by Whitefield Global School. Competing with fifteen other schools, the all-girls spirited team conquered their opponents by sheer confidence, teamwork and quick thinking. In their own words- It was a wholesome learning experience which taught us to handle pressure, to manage time and to stay calm in a time crunch. We hope that we continue to get such opportunities in the future.
