Beyond Academics

Neerja Modi school, Chittorgarh (NMSC) is one of the schools were we have a lot of extracurricular activities other than academics as it is required for overall development of the child. Here art, craft, dance, music, yoga and sports are given as much importance as academics. We believe skill development is absolutely essential to prepare students for life.
